"The cottage is lovely, very well equipped and clean. The setting is very tranquil, relaxing and quiet. Also spacious enough for our party of 4 adults and 2 children.My only negative is that it was difficult to contact the care taker for collection and return of the keys as her phone was on voice mail on a number of calls made."
"Some good points and bad points."

"This cottage is on a stunning property and it is very spacious and private.However, there are issues with the electricity so it would've been nice to have a gas stove to cook on. A lot of the crockery is dirty and there are fish moths living in them, had to rewash a lot of things. Be careful of the bathroom taps as they also like to shock you sometimes. It is also very dark inside and when the power was out it was pitch black even during the day.Despite the things mentioned above, it has a lot of character and I would've liked to stay longer. Nice braai area and garden, as well as comfy beds. It is quite cosy inside, we were happy with most of our stay."

"The Directions and Check in instructions was 12 pages. The person let us wait for the keys althou we followed the instructions. The said the rain was the problem. She should get a umbrella. The cottage was nice but cold. Coffee, Tea and Soap would have been nice as well as a bundle of wood."
"Comfortable among the forest."

"We stayed in Lothlorien for 6 nights in April, and what a great experience. The cottage is very spacious for 4 adults, is reasonably equipped and very cosy. We really enjoyed our stay, we were even sad to leave the cottage. I would definitely stay in Lothlorien again in the future. We all fell in love with Hogsback!"

"Very quiet and private. Lovely garden. But the cottage is a bit rundown and needs some upgrading. Kitchen equipment is poor, toaster doesn't work etc. A bit more comfort would do."
