Recently returned from a 2 night stay at Maple Grove with my wife and 3 kids. The cottage is very charming with good space and a nice outdoor area. Most importantly, as per previous reviews, Hogsback in winter can be very cold but Maple Grove will ensure you're snug and warm when indoors. Facilities are good but not plush -... More

Hogsback is an isolated mountain village, nestled in a pristine environment of true natural beauty. People visit to experience this wilderness, and in winter it's a snowy wonderland. So it can be bitterly cold, bitterly uncomfortable, and no fun at all if your temporary home isn't up to scratch. Some of the accommodation up here is cute, but totally inadequate... More

My daughter, grand-daughter and I have just spent two days at Maple Grove. The accommodation was comfy and warm, with a fireplace in the lounge and built-in heaters in the bedrooms as well as electric blankets, which were so welcoming with winter around the corner, although luckily the weather was mild and warm. We had everything we needed (though couldn't... More

We stayed in the Cabin, and really enjoyed our short break away. Everything was spotless clean, everything we needed were there, and although it was colder than expected, we had the comfort of electric blankets and a fire-place! Will definitely come again.

We had a wonderful 3-night (too short!) stay at Maple Grove and loved everything about it. We stayed in the Cottage, which was kitted out with everything we needed and more! It was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and cozy. Lyndsay and Paul were fantastic hosts, even helping us fix our car when it broke down as we arrived... They went... More

We spent four nights in the Chalet it was a lovely private home away from home, very cozy in a lovely position in Hogsback. Lyndsay was very helpful and freindly. Tip for Hogsback: Do all grocery shopping beforehand.

On arrival we were met by Lyndsay who gave us a warm welcome and gave us basic info without lingering. Even though the Chalet where we stayed did not look impressive from outside, it was lovely on the inside. A fire was already set in the fireplace, there was some chilly sherry, rusks, milk coffee and sugar. Everything you may... More

Lovely location in the hills, just outside of town. Stayed here 2 nights, should have stayed more. We (a family of 4) stayed in the cottage and our friends in the cabin. Had everything required including a portable braai on the deck and a fire place inside stocked with logs. Will definately spend more time in the Hogsback after our... More

We stayed 3 nights with Lyndsay and Peter and had a fantastic time.The property was warm and welcoming, perfect for our family, with a great fireplace. It was very comfortable and made a great place from which to talk walks and visit the area.

The hosts of the property are fantastic. Personal, friendly & very helpful attention offered from start to finish. Our privacy was also respected which is great. We stayed in The Cottage which is very spacious and comfortable. Everything is provided for self-catering (incl. double door fridge, oven and stove) but there are a number of restaurants nearby. I was most... More
