The natural beauty of Hogsback is a must for nature lovers.

If I could have packed Samango Cottage into my luggage and taken it with me, I would have done so! An absolutely beautiful little - very original - cottage (fashioned out of an old disused swimming pool) set in magical surroundings and the hospitality offered by Josef & Elsa was just fantastic.

Salamander Cottage was beautiful. We loved the setting....beautiful gardens and secluded in the forest. Basic but clean and it had everything we needed. I loved the views of the mountains and how central it was to everything in Hogsback. Stunning!

Hogsback is really beautiful and definitely worth visiting. The accommodation at Never Daunted is very basic, but has all the necessities. There are no washing machines so hand laundry is the only option. Also, shopping is very limited - so take all your own supplies.
But the hospitality of the owners is excellent and the garden setting is magnificent. The roads around Hogsback are quite bad if you have a sedan car - but manageable. We will definitely go back again.
