The Edge Mountain Retreat offers a range of accommodation options for individuals, families and groups, including self-catering cottages and bed-and-breakfast rooms, all set in 15 acres of cool climate gardens.

From the edge of the cliff, which runs along the side of the property, there are spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and a deep gorge with beautiful, unspoiled indigenous Afromontane forest, often with a show of fascinating swirling mists and cloud formations.

The restaurant at The Edge offers good food (locally grown organic when possible) and tea-time treats. Our Vula Vista Venue is a special space for wedding receptions, conferences, workshops and yoga retreats.

We loved our stay. The location of Edge Mountain Retreat is beautiful. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Their restaurant is the only place I found that had a various options for vegans.

Rooms could possible do with some updating but our room had everything the we needed.

We stayed in Daedelus' Shelter for three nights (with two small dogs). The welcome, accommodation, facilities and, of course, the surrounds of Hogsback were fantastic.

We had a lovely time during our short stay at the Chestnut cottage at The Edge. We arrived late afternoon and stayed overnight so that we could explore Hogsback during the following day. The chalet was cosy and neat. The rooms are warm and the fireplace and heaters in each room make a big difference. There is no TV to entertain the kids but luckily i brought a laptop with Netflix. Kids enjoyed exploring the garden the next morning.
Pity it was too late for snowy weather

We had a wonderful, relaxing stay... except that on our last evening, the tree right next to our "Kudu Shack" was stuck by lightning. The very prompt and concerned response from management was just wonderful. We even received a bottle of red wine the next morning with apologies! Thank you for an amazing couple of days. We truly loved being in Hogsback. We hope to be back.

Fabulous. 4 out of 5

Beautiful mountain surroundings, a peaceful cottage set among azaleas and rhododendrons, long walks and a labyrinth to calm the mind are a few of the treasures found at Edge Mountain Retreat. The restaurant and friendly helpful staff are an added bonus.

Lots of lovely hikes in calm and quiet place. Just beware of the amount and severity of the potholes throughout the town, even in an SUV you are most certainly going to feel them and you certainly can't avoid them all. Go for the quiet and the beauty of the forests.
