Too small for 6 people. Stunning views though.

Sleeping 6 is a very tight squeeze. The concept is great, but the finishes are very rough and incomplete. There is no running water in the basin in the second bathroom. The owner received constructive criticism well and said they would implement the suggestions made. Although I think the daily rate is high for what the den has to offer, we had a pleasant stay. The views are breathtaking, and we loved watching the moon come up over the mountains from the veranda.

Gasvryheid was tops.

As dit nie vir Helen se aanbevelings was nie, het ons nooit die juwele van Hogsback ontdek wat ons het nie! Oprit en parkering is nie so maklik begaanbaar vir 'n lae kar nie, en die woonstel waarin ons was, is onder die hoofhuis met 'n plankvloer wat skei. Dit sal nie vir almal ideaal wees nie, maar dit het ons nie gepla nie. Daar is 'n ander eenheid op die perseel wat weg is van die hoofhuis. Sou jy dit eerder verkies, doen navraag. Pragtige plekkie, alles wat jy nodig het en ook 'n lekker koolstoof vir die koue. Mooiste uitsigte!

Hospitality was top notch.

If it wasn't for Helen's recommendations, we would never have discovered the gems of Hogsback that we have! Driveway and parking are not that easy to pass for a low car, and the apartment we were in is below the main house with a split plank floor. It won't be ideal for everyone, but it didn't bother us. There is another unit on the premises which is away from the main house. Should you prefer it instead, inquire. Beautiful place, everything you need and also a nice coal stove for the cold. Most beautiful views!

Dit was 'n besonderse ervaring.

Eco Fox Den is definitief sentraal geleë t.o.v. al die staproetes wat in Hogsback is. Die grondpaaie kort aandag en sal dit aanbeveel met 'n 4x4 voertuig veral as dit gereën het. Die huisie het 'n aardse gevoel en as jy slegs net die nodige verlang, is dit die aangewese plek. Die koolstoof is definitief 'n wenner.

It was a special experience.

Eco Fox Den is definitely centrally located in relation to all the hiking trails that are in Hogsback. The dirt roads need attention and would recommend it with a 4x4 vehicle especially if it has been raining. The cottage has an earthy feel and if you only want the essentials, this is the place to be. The charcoal stove is definitely a winner.

Ontsnap die stad.

Ons het heerlik gebly by Eco Fox Den, 'n paar goed was nie soos dit moes wees nie bv: Daar was nie genoeg glase nie, ook geen skerp mes nie, geen braaibak vir vleis nie. Die gordyne maak nie die vensters heeltemal toe nie en dan is daar 'n paar vensters wat glad nie gordyne het nie wat aantrek ens. nogal ongemaklik maak. Vir mense met klein kinders: daar is 'n paar groot honde wat vrylik op die perseel rondloop, maar hulle is baie vriendelik! Die pad is ook nie geskik vir alle voertuie nie. Ons was baie vriendelik ontvang en dadelik vertel van al die "gems" rondom Hogsback.

Escape the city.

We had a wonderful stay at Eco Fox Den, a few things were not as they should be eg: There were not enough glasses, also no sharp knife, no braai tray for meat. The curtains don't close the windows completely and then there are some windows that don't have curtains at all that draw etc. quite uncomfortable. For people with small children: there are some large dogs that roam freely on the premises, but they are very friendly! The road is also not suitable for all vehicles. We were received very kindly and immediately told about all the "gems" around Hogsback.

Tranquil stay in Hogsback.

I highly recommend staying at the Eco Fox Den if you travel to Hogsback. Helen is a lovely host who goes above and beyond to make your stay memorable and is ready to assist with any queries. The solar energy and donkey boiler ensured that we forgot what load shedding was for the weekend.
