Staying at Nutwoods Park was one of the highlights of our trip in South Africa. Neil and Atila treated us like personal guests in their beautiful house which is furnished with antiques. The bedroom we had (the Oriental Suite) was very well equipped and had the most comfortable beds. Sadly the wifi didn't reach it but it was easily obtainable...

I just never get tired of this establishment, the quality of food is just unbelievable. The setting is elegant and warm and the hosts are just amazing and very gifted people. The tapas and paella is simply awesome and the quantity of food is......... well let's just say you won't leave feeling hungry. Oh yes, before I forget the brown...

There was really no competition when it came to choosing a venue for our special day, Nutwoods has it all! The garden is breath-taking, the rooms are beautifully decorated with eclectic antique pieces and the hosts, Atila and Neil, are not only wonderful chefs and organisers, but are also two of the loveliest people we have ever met. Nutwoods has...

A magical venue for a beautiful summer wedding. Everything was delightful from the planning stages right up to the event itself. The hosts Neil and Atila couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. The rose garden was a stunning place for the couple to say their vows, in a romantic light mountain mist. The finger food was beautifully crafted and...

We had a magnificent time at Nutwoods Park! The cottage was cosy and very comfortable and caters for those chilly nights. Friday night dinner was a traditional paella, which was outstanding! We even got to take left overs home to have for breakfast. Saturday evening was a fun filled, unforgettable fine dining experience. Cannot wait to return to share this...

We didn't stay at Nutwoods but my friend and I celebrated my 60th birthday with a dinner there. We were the only guests (which was very fitting, it seemed) and Atila made a special effort for us, catering to our dietary requirements and even producing a bottle a French champagne, on the house, so we could celebrate in style. This...

The stay was a welcomed break from the hustle. Over our four night stay, the dining was a superb experience of set courses (that can be tailored according to your dietary needs) taking us on a trip from Mexico to Spain using the ingredients common to South Africa. The hosts were wonderful, illuminating us with the stories and the history...

We got married at Nutwoods in 2014 - it is so special to us. If you go to Hogsback, even if you do not stay at Nutwoods, make sure to book a dinner at Nutwoods. The food is out of this world. We like staying in the Pyramid room.

Neil and Attila were gracious and generous hosts for our family dinner. Dinner was preceded by drinks around the fire (with homemade black olives). The food was scrumpious. Delicious lamb shank and creative vegetarian options. Desert was a feast for the eye and the palate (three assorted deserts). This place is a jewel tucked away in a mountain retreat in...
