Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Blackwood Cottage is ideal for a solo adventurer or traveling couple. We are situated at the end of our road (being the last property before one heads into Forestry), but still close enough to the Village for exploring if one chooses to - although there is plenty to explore right on our doorstep. Enjoy the sights & sounds of our very own waterfall - or simply stoke the wood burning fire and take some time out. You choose!

The space
Blackwood Cottage has been renovated into a bright yet cosy space. It stands adjacent to some large Blackwood trees but enjoys wonderful sunshine all year round. Much of the contents have been handmade or up-cycled giving it a completely unique atmosphere.
The kitchenette has a two plate gas hob, refrigerator, toaster and all the necessary crockery/cutlery one should need.
The bathroom is complete with basin, toilet and a spacious shower.

Feel free to take yourself on one of the meandering pathways down to the river and the waterfall. Or enjoy a stroll through the orchard.
Besides the main house, workshop and other private cabins/cottages, guests are free to explore the property and surrounds at their own leisure.
As we have two very friendly and curious dogs, please don’t be surprised if they join you on a stroll!

Where you’ll be

Hogsback, Eastern Cape, South Africa

Our property, Organic Origins, is the last property on our road - after us you head into Forestry. Our neighbours north and west of us are the trees. Occasionally a timber truck or chainsaw may be heard but otherwise we are spoilt with a serene calmness and quiet. Due to the lack of light pollution the night sky is something to behold while you stand and gaze up to the milky way.

We love to travel and stay in places people have personally created, hence when we decided to develop our own little property we wanted to offer the same. Our lifestyle is richly simple, sustainable and light footed. We love to go walking with our two dogs, digging our hands into the earth to plants veggies and herbs and allowing nature to show us the intended design. We are creatives and nothing goes in the trash - whether it be upcycled, recycled or reused! Dayle is a qualified massage therapist and yoga instructor. Being fortunate to have done her yoga training in Rishikesh, India and having 15 years therapy experience she loves being able to unwind those bodies and minds who need to unplug and re-earth themselves. Massage is available to guests (at an additional cost) in the privacy and comfort of Rooted Wellness - a dedicated space for holistic therapy. Jaco has played guitar for 24 years and loves a jam! He is a cordon blue chef and cooks for his guests (at an additional cost) either by entertaining them in his own home or providing private meals in the cabin. He speaks French and has worked and or travelled for 15 years expanding his knowledge and appreciation for international foods. Jaco loves to share a table of good chatter, laughter and delicious food.
