We spent very relaxed an pleasant days at this peaceful place with the very polite land-lady.
She served us most delicious breakfast and diner always fresh and carefully prepared.
Very nice and clean rooms and generous ambiente. Especially the beautiful garden which you face sitting on your private terrace invites you to stay there the whole day.

We spent 3 nights at Granny Mouse for our second wedding anniversary and it was lovely and relaxing. We were in the self catering accommodation, which more than catered for our needs. Hogsback is a beautiful place and Granny Mouse is situated in a lovely quiet spot, with it's own stunning gardens and pool. Definitely a romantic getaway!

From initial contact Granny Mouse and our hostess Ingrid went the extra mile to make our stay memorable. Guest cottage beautifully appointed, cuisine sublime and relaxed evenings with a great raconteur! We could be as private or as sociable as we liked , while service remained impeccable. Great value !!

A stay at Granny Mouse House offers excellent accommodation, delicious food, the opportunity for total relaxation in superb surroundings and a delightful host, in fact everything we look for in a holiday. Our large en-suite Garden Room was so restful: a really comfortable bed with cosy duvet, and electric blanket if needed, and cane seats on the verandah where we could relax with a book, looking out over Ingrid's lovely garden. The dogs, Chubba and Phala, greeted us like old friends, expecting - and receiving - lots of fuss

Ingrid offered to provide a meal on our first evening, and proved to be a splendid cook as well as an interesting and informative host. She served a full English breakfast each morning which set us up for the day, and we decided where and when to eat each evening based on our host's recommendation: each choice suited us very well.

The garden is a joy: when we were there in spring we had lavender outside our room, primroses, bluebells, roses and proteus bloomed in profusion in the gardens, together with colourful rhododendrons and azaleas. There is also a coppice of silver birch trees, with seats beneath, and a swimming pool to sit by or take a cooling swim. As Ingrid said: "a small corner of England in South Africa".

A visit to Hogsback is a fascinating and relaxing interlude when travelling round South Africa, and a stay at Granny Mouse House is the icing on the cake.

We have recently spent 3 days at " Granny Mouse House" in Hogsback where we had a wonderful, relaxing holiday.
The owner, Ingrid, is a fantastic cook and provided the most generous, tasty meals as well as being an excellent hostess.
The accommodation is first class and one is surrounded by magnificent gardens.
For anyone wanting excellent food,company and beautiful surroundings free of the city sounds and stress this is the place to visit.
