About High Goon Vrea

High Goonvrea on Hogsback is a beautiful 20 acre property in Tor Doone lane with three self-catering units: The Cottage, the Woodland Cabin and the Garden Flat. Nestling in the lee of Tor Doone, the property is set in beautiful wooded gardens.

During the Spring Festival many of the beautiful private woodland gardens are open to the public. Hogsback in Spring is a cacophony of colour. But it can also be white! Tolkien is said to have been inspired to write The Hobbit here and one can imagine how Hogsback evoked Middle Earth for him.

The Cottage is a spacious and charming thatched dwelling. It is one of the original Hogsback homesteads, built by an Italian prisoner of war. It has a sitting room/dining area with open fireplace, a separate kitchen with washing machine, fridge, glass hob and microwave. It also has an Aga-type stove for ambiance.

The two large bedrooms have Queen-sized beds with electric blankets and one bedroom has an additional single bed. The bathroom has both a bath and a shower. The Woodland Cottage is a small but perfect, secluded hideaway with a view of its own large private woodland garden. It consists of a sitting/kitchen area with wood burner.

The bedroom has a queen-sized bed and an inter-leading bathroom with shower, basin and toilet. The covered patio has a table and chairs and its own Weber braai. The Garden Flat consists of a bedroom/sitting area with queen-sized bed, separate kitchen and bathroom. It has access to a wooded lawn.

Hogsback is high in the Amatola mountains of the Eastern Cape. As you climb up the mountain pass and leave the Karoo behind, you enter a different micro-climate and another world. Hogsback is rich in natural beauty but also has fascinating places to visit.
