“Upmarket elegant accommodation, superbly decoration”
Reviewed 25 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

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.

“Fantastic cottage”
Reviewed 24 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

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)!!

“Beautifully equipped old stone cottage in the woods”
Reviewed 11 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017


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.

“Five star accomodation”
Reviewed 3 February 2017 for a stay in December 2016

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
