The Acorn House
Welcome to Acorn House. Specifically for Amatola Trail Hiking groups this property is a part of the Away with the Fairies family, though it is on its own fenced-off independent property and is completely private. It is a self-catering, 2 bedroom house (Sleeping 8 and 4 people) with a 5 acre garden and the most stunning views in Hogsback.
The best location in Hogsback
The house itself is perched close to a cliff edge that borders the Auckland Nature reserve. This results in uninterrupted views of the three Hogsback mountains and the Auckland Nature reserve. Being so close to the forest brings with it all the beautiful wildlife that is found there. From the House you can see baboons, Samango Monkeys, Cape Parrots, Knysna Louries and many other species of wildlife enjoying the stunning private garden. You will also be able to enter the many hiking trails which are found just outside the property.
The Perfect Base Camp
Hiking the Amatola Trail is tough, so you need a comfortable, fully equiped base to prepare for the hike and recover from it afterwards. We have made it as easy as possible for you by ensuring there is nothing you will lack during your stay here.
It has 2 bunked bedrooms – an 8 bed and an en-suite 4 bed, and a full communal bathroom. The kitchen is fitted with a washing machine and a dishwasher. Furthermore, it also has other high quality appliances such as a gas stove and oven combo, kettle, toaster and a fridge-freezer combo. We have provided loads of prepping space with beautiful counter tops. Best of all, you can do all your cooking while enjoying the stunning views of the Hogs.
We look forward to being able to host you for your stay in Hogsback!
