Welcome to Granny Mouse House, Hogsbacks premier owner run Guesthouse tucked away high up in the Amathole Mountains of the Eastern Cape. We cater for adult guests, in a sophisticated yet relaxed country atmosphere.

Bed and Breakfast accommodation is offered in 3 double en-suite rooms, all with private pool and garden facing patios. For couples requiring more privacy, 2 fully equipped and serviced Self-Catering units are available, located in the large landscaped garden.

We enjoy the accolade of being the first catered establishment in Hogsback to have attained 4 Star Superior accreditation from both AA and TGCSA.

Located just outside the village centre, Granny Mouse House is the ideal base from which to explore what Hogsback has to offer. Go for a hike to one of the numerous waterfalls in the area or lose yourself in the labyrinth at The Edge. Alternatively enjoy a leisurely stroll through Ingrids beautiful and well-established garden, taking in the peace and tranquility which makes Hogsback such a magical and mystical place.

We invite you to come and experience our little piece of paradise. Ingrid will gladly share her wealth of knowledge, depth of conversation and passion for life with you. Arrive as a guest and leave as a friend, taking with you only wonderful memories and yearning to return one day soon.

The winding road from Alice takes one steeply up the pass and quickly back in time to a place which still echoes the thoughts and tales of JRR Tolkein.
