We just spent the weekend in Hogsback with our Lab puppy. The Melody Cottage at Swallowtail was perfect for the two of us and our dog. He had so much space to roam and play. The cottage itself is cosy and rustic and has all you need for a wonderful weekend! We loved our stay!

Everything was perfect, better than promised. Only small drawback was not being told the wood would cost R50 per wheelbarrow, as we had also brought our own.

Suggestion: Perhaps, if you could heighten the chimney of the Melody Cottage, the smoke inside would not be as big a problem... even if the fire is made deep in the fireplace as recommended, the smoke inside was still a problem at times, and we had to open windows and doors for a while.Otherwise, our stay was very pleasant, thank you.
