    Beautiful spacious accommodation, near the main stretch of shops. Beautiful gardens and interior that was really clean and comfortable - a real pleasure to stay in. Wish we'd stayed longer!

    Well equipped, clean and spacious. WiFi is good, there’s some rechargeable lights, gas stove and a fireplace which means during load shedding one is sheltered. The host sent some recommendations via WhatsApp daily which is thoughtful. Oh and the...

Host Information

Host review score

Located high up in the stunningly beautiful Amathole Mountains, the hamlet of Hogsback is reminiscent of a bygone era, where life is slow and tranquil and one can enjoy the beauty of nature at its best. Feed your soul at Laragh-on-Hogsback where nature is timeless and infinite. Relax on your covered patio; listen to the sounds of the forest around you - bird song in the morning, the chirping of insects in the evening. Enjoy the stupendous full moon rising over the three Hogs or get up early and watch the glorious sun rises. Gaze at Tor Doone in anticipation of your walks to the several waterfalls set amongst one of the few sub-tropical mountain forests left in South Africa. Breathe in the crisp mountain air, revel in the winter cold and snow (weather permitting) and then curl up in front of a roaring fireplace, and enjoy the warmth and comfort of your cottage. Laragh-on-Hogsback, (Laragh pronounced LAR a) named after our ancestral farm in Ireland, is a Gaelic word meaning "this or the place". The Celtic knot in the logo signifies the joining of man and nature especially with the tree as the fountain of life.
Norman & Jenny have been living in Hogsback since 2011
Hogsback is a nature lover's paradise - a mountain hamlet surrounded by the Elandsberg, Amathole Mountains, the Hogs - 3 mountains with ridges that resemble the 'bristles' of a Hog - and Gaika's Kop. It is in the heart of Frontier Country where the 8th Frontier war was started. Walking trails through the forests include the Big Tree - a 300-year-old Yellow Wood. The Arboretum - a living museum of the different trees found in Hogsback - is en route to the 39-steps waterfall, one of the many spectacular waterfalls to visit. The Amathole trail - a grueling 6-day hike - ends in Hogsback near the Swallow Tail waterfall. Abseiling is an option at the popular Madonna & Child waterfall. Kettle Spout waterfall offers panoramic views across the Tyume Valley. There are over 200 species of birds including the endangered Cape Parrot. Look out for the rare Samango monkey. For the more active, there are mountain bikes for hire, fly-fishing on the nearby farms, and horse riding.
