Away with the Fairies was everything we were looking for and more. Not only did we find a beautiful campsite with hot showers but we found incredibly friendly and personable staff, a fantastic bar with one of the best atmospheres we have ever come across - and some of the best music selections we have heard in a while. The viewpoint is stunning and definitely worth visiting at sunrise. Do ask about the hikes in the area, we chose the hike from Away with the fairies to the Madonna and Child waterfall - the whole hike was absolutely beautiful (bring good walking boots for it, it was a bit muddy in places). I wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Hogsback!

Even though it’s really far off from a bigger town it offers everything you need. The people are really nice and relaxed. The bar is cool and trendy and the bath tub is just amazing. Not to mention all the crazily beautiful hikes you can do around it. The 7 hour hike was my favourite

Everything about Away with the Fairies blew me away and was a great introduction to Hogsback. The staff there is amazing and so hospitable. I met so many people of various ages and stories. The lodge is situated on a cliff in the Amatole Mountains which provides a breathtaking view to wake up to.
