About

Family run regenerative permaculture homestead

in 2017 a South African wizard and a German muggle rebranded one of the oldest farms in Hogsback.  Hogwarts forest is now widely regarded in both the muggle and magic realm as foremost family destination in the Hogsback mountains. 

In these heavy times, it is natural to want to reconnect with Nature, to escape for a while to a place that lets the soul and spirit run free.  Hogsback is one of these places.  

When you stay at Hogwarts Forest, you will believe in magic again.”

“I cannot stress how incredible this place is. Heike and Kinesh have really put such thought into the details.
They are wonderful hosts. The location is beautiful. The place is clean and comfy and SUPER WARM. There’s a beautiful trail on the property which is food for the soul! I highly recommend staying here.”

Fantastic location, a short drive from the town centre. The cottage is located on a beautiful plot with lots of privacy and tranquility. The spacious cottage was extremely clean and homey, especially with a delightful fireplace for those frozen evenings.

A bed in the separate bedroom offered a very comfortable sleep with a gas operated shower functioning flawlessly.

The hosts were very friendly and provided us with fantastic ideas for eating places and hikes.

10 out of 10 would recommend this hidden gem. Our only regret is that our stay was too short.

“We had a wonderful time
In Hogsback. Heike and Kinnesh are both such engaging and warm people and so willing to share their knowledge. the farm is beautiful and there is so much for kids to do and explore. The Harry Potter touches are obviously all intriguing for kids but it is the outdoor environment that completely transformed our stay.

I would highly recommend their listing – it really is a magical experience for kids.”

Our time at HogWarts Forest  was magnificent. We were blown away by all the thoughtful touches that made our stay so comfortable.

Fresh picked organic food, personalized excursions, tours of the beautiful property and a super comfy king bed, to name a few things.

The cottage is so charming and thoughtfully decorated. I would recommend this place to single travelers, couples, and families with children. There is something for everyone here.
