About Granny Mouse House

Granny Mouse House is a full-service Guest House. Guests may book Bed & Breakfast and self-catering cottages are also available. We are situated in Nutwoods Drive, on the Bluff in Hogsback, within walking distance of many sought-after tourist attractions.

HOGSBACK ACCOMMODATION

Catered Accommodation - B&B:
Small, intimate and cosy, we accept a maximum of 6 catered guests at a time, accommodated in two double en-suite rooms, and one twin-bedded, all with pool and garden-facing patios. Each room has been individually furnished in colour combinations that reflect the garden views beyond them.

Self Catering Cottages:
We offer two self catering units, each sleeping a couple in double beds. Both are fully equipped and serviced.

For the budget conscious, our thatched rondavel 'Notta Mushroom' cottage is cute and cosy, en-suite with shower, private patio and braai facilities (wood provided) situated next to the pool area.

For the more discerning, a second unit is situated in a private, walled garden courtyard corner of the orchard;; 'Nutty Pair' is a bed-sit-type apartment with lounge area (limited DSTV and hi-fi) en-suite with shower, full modern kitchen, private patio and braai facilities (wood provided) shaded by a pair of mature walnut trees.

Both units have gas-powered showers. Secure off-street parking is provided.

DINING

Breakfasts are served around a single ageing, not quite antique dining table and several lifelong friendships have been formed in this manner during the years that we have provided our modest services. We cater for the discerning guest in a sophisticated, yet relaxed country atmosphere.

ATTRACTIONS

All the mountains surrounding Hogsback are visible from the property. The gardens have been laid out in the old-fashioned cottage garden style, with interleading “garden rooms” each with its own unique colour combinations and many secluded areas to sit and quietly enjoy them. Roses abound and rare shrubs, trees and perennials are of special interest to the keen gardener. The plantings encourage many species of birds to visit, to the delight of the birding fraternity.

HOGSBACK

Hogsback developed around the establishment of Lovedale College in the early 1800’s, being attractive in the summer months as a cool refuge from the heat of the Alice and Tyume valley areas, to the missionaries who taught there. They would hitch up their ox-wagons and remove their entire households to the forested mountains for a period of rest and quiet respite. The journey would take 5 days from Alice to Hogsback.

These days it is easily and quickly reached by car, but the purpose for the journey remains the same. The 33kms from the King Williams Town road take one steeply up the Pass and quickly back in time, to a place which still echoes with the thoughts and tales of JRR Tolkien. And whose dusty streets are still reminiscent of a time when the pace of life was slower.
