Hoggie Cottage was the original dwelling on Ilifu and as such has maintained its old world charm. The cottage has two bedrooms, a cosy lounge, bathroom with old iron bath, big farmstyle kitchen, a courtyard and a patio.
The main bedroom has a spectacular view over the valley down to Alice and you can lie in bed watching the mist rise over the valley. It has a queen size bed, lots of linen (duvet, down duvet, quilt) and electric blanket with sliding doors onto a big patio where you can lie on the lounger staring out over the valley.
There is a fireplace in the lounge as well as a TV with DVD player and mini hi-fi. Please feel feel to bring your own music and DVD’s for those rainy misty days. There is a sleeper couch in the lounge, if you would like to sleep in front of the fire, or for children.
The second bedroom has 2 single copper beds with a door leading into the courtyard.
The kitchen is equipped with all the normal stuff you would need for cooking….gas stove, fridge….and it also leads onto the courtyard through french doors.
The courtyard is a place for hanging out, having a braai or just sitting in the sun, reading a book.
My plate collection has found its place here in Hoggie Cottage and you are welcome to bring a plate and hang it anywhere in the courtyard. Remember to write your name and date of visit on the back of the plate.
