Overlooking the Matjies River Gorge, Plettenberg Bay’s authentically South African Hog Hollow Country Lodge is a wonderful place from which to enjoy this beautiful part of the world. The lodge offers sixteen fabulous garden suites nestled in the leafy grounds surrounding the main house, all of which boast a secluded wooden deck providing the perfect spot to enjoy an evening sundowner with the sounds of the garden as your evening soundtrack. Delightfully rustic, guests come here to get away from the daily grind; there are no televisions in the rooms as the lodge prides itself on offering a haven for those seeking a restorative retreat.
Decorated with warm, earthy textures and hand-crafted artifacts, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Hot water bottles and jars of home-baked cookies washed down with homemade lemon syrup provide a warm welcome for the weary traveller; while families are especially welcome at Hog Hollow, with three double-storey suites on offer.
There is even a baby-sitting service, complete with warm milk and gingerbread men, as well as toys and a bedtime story – allowing parents to go out and enjoy themselves comforted in the knowledge that their little ones are in safe hands.
The lodge boasts delectable dining, from delicious breakfasts served on the boma deck with mountain and forest views, through to gourmet dinners in front of the fireplace under the balmy African skies. Guests tend to convene around the lodge’s central dining room table or in one of the three lounge areas where there are heaps of cushions and sofas, proving a perfect spot to lie back and unwind.
Warm afternoons can be spent cooling off in the lovely pool, which is surrounded by comfortable lounge chairs. Bookworms can retreat to the reading room, offering a peaceful sanctuary for anyone who wants to escape and enjoy the mountain views.
For those who want to explore the local environs or partake in any of the many activities available, the lodge’s hosts will help with any planning or booking, as well as send you off with a delicious picnic basket full of homemade treats.
