What an amazing way to end our December holiday. Ingrid the owner of Granny Mouse House made our stay super special with her hospitality and intimate knowledge of Hogsback. The gardens are beautiful and the breakfast really special. I cannot wait for our next visit.

Stayed: December 2016, travelled with friends

Granny Mouse has that rare combination of old world charm and modern convenience. The room we stayed in had the charm and grace of a bygone era but the facilities, including fridge, TV, wifi, kettle with tea and coffee and stunning rusks were as up-to-date as can be. The room has a large "reception area" which has a separate toilet and shower and a fridge. The unit opens to a lovely secluded patio area with seating and table and overlooks the lovely stone pool and garden which is beautifully designed, with lovely little walkways into a birch grove, a hydrangea garden and some stunning day lillies, rose and azalea beds and other garden delights. I would love to visit in Spring when the Hogsback is ablaze with colourful azaleas and rhododendrons amongst other beauties. For nature lovers, Granny Mouse is a must and the hostess is friendly and accommodating with a great knowledge of gardening in Hogsback. She has amusing anecdotes of local shenanigans and the colourful characters that make up this quaint and interesting community.

Stayed: November 2016

Granny Mouse House is in an excellent location, close to the town. We were greeted by a smiling Ingrid (the owner) and her two wonderful ridgebacks. Her cottages are in a beautiful garden in a forest. Once inside the property, there is a sense of tranquility. The best thing about Ingrid is that she is an excellent hostess and was extremely flexible. Lizzy, the housekeeper was a treat and looked after our needs very well (as did Ingrid). We had English breakfasts for a week before moving into the self-catering unit which were scrumptious! We spent many hours chatting and laughing with Ingrid and other guests. It truly felt like a home from home and my wife and I cannot recommended it highly enough. We spent 9 days there and we weren't ready to go home yet.

Room Tip: The rooms in the main house are very quaint and cooler

We found The Granny Mouse House on Tripadvisor and thought it looked wonderful. We were not disappointed, a beautiful oasis in a very strange little town filled with middle-earthers and alternative therapists. Our lovely room overlooked the beautiful garden and pool; it was lovely walking the paths winding between trees, bushes and tropical plants. The breakfast was wonderful and we enjoyed chatting with Ingrid the owner. We also enjoyed meeting two of the most beautiful Rhodesian Ridgebacks we have ever seen.

Stayed: January 2017

We stayed over for two days. Ingrid was an attentive host and has been managing the gorgeously beautiful property and gardens for a long time. One feels completely secluded and away from all noise on these premises above Hogsback. It was really hot when we arrived and being able to dip into the lovely swimming pool was a big bonus. We can really recommend this house for a relaxing stay!

Room Tip: All rooms have doors that give access to the garden and pool and have a small stoep area
