Everything is perfectly modern style with great taste decorated, wonderful equipped kitchen, cosy salon, excellent fireplaces, one bedroom a bit small but the other one comfortable. I wish we could have spent more time in this most amazing cottage, incredible garden with the most impressive trees and water falls. An experience not to be missed.
This is one of the nicest places I’ve ever stayed at. Everything’s been done to a really high standard and the location is hard to beat. The hosts have pretty much thought of everything (the hosts are really helpful but also leave you alone). My only regret was that it was too cold to enjoy the amazing pool (I lasted 30 seconds)!!
With 2 double bedrooms and costing R 2200 per night, this self catering, thatched, old stone cottage, perched on the edge of the Hogsback plateau should be good, and it is. Set in the lush gardens of owners Sandy and Rob Wicks, with fresh water infinity pool below, the view from the tiered terrace is breath-taking. This beautiful old house has been thoughtfully decorated and furnished, although the kitchen is a bit basic with no working grill or oven, although there is a splendid brai in the garden and several restaurants in nearby Hogsback Village. The house feels as if it is miles from anywhere with a garden of sun birds and the occassional flitting Knysna lourie, acrobatic samango monkeys, and lurking baboons. However, there is a not unattractive aroma of damp thatch and missing are a clothes line or clothes horse, ironing board or iron. Small things, admittedly, in this luxury getaway pad.
Stayed at Bredon Stone Cottage in the Hogsback. Sandy Wicks has created a homely environment with attention to detail - ranging from wood and firelighters for the outside braai and indoor wood heaters, teas, coffee and milk in the kitchen and a welcoming bottle of wine. She and her husband were most welcoming and unobtrusive. Their cottage is situated overlooking the valley below and the garden is filled with sunbirds, Knysna louries hydrangeas and azaleas. Truly a piece of Paradise
From booking to checking out it was all a please Sandy Wicks runs a great place abd is very caring
Rob her husband is friendly
We have stayed in many self catering places and this is right up with the best
