"Charming place with a breathtaking garden. Very warm and welcoming hosts. It was a wonderful stay in a lovely village. One day poured with rain and the inside fire made a cosy lazy afternoon, while the garden was a treat when the sun came out. Everything you need is there. A few too many ornaments and things inside - hard to find place to put our own things!"

"The magical Hogsback setting, spotless and complete facilities, and the attentiveness and interesting conversation of the Fivazes male this a wonderful place to stay. (Nothing to do with the song about the 1950s Sophiatown joint in the musical 'King Kong', except that this 'Back o' the Moon is equally timeless)"

"We had a lovely stay and I would recommendBack o' the Moon Cottage to anyone looking to stay in Hogsback. It was a real home from home, from the electric blankets to the rusks left for us. We were a little cold so if you are going in winter - dress warmly!! Thank you Norma and Derek!"
