Nutwoods Park is a lovely guesthouse situated in a glorious old property dating back to 1895 nestled in a beautiful three-hectare garden in the heart of Hogsback and cradled by the magnificent Amathole mountain range in the Eastern Cape, South Africa.
We are surrounded by beautiful forests with mystical forest walks where you will encounter lovely waterfalls, ancient trees and where one can see beautiful bird life including the endangered East Cape green parrot, knysna louries and a host of smaller birds.
At all seasons Hogsback is a delight but in spring you will be treated to an eye dazzling display of azaleas, rhododendrons flowering shrubs and spring bulbs both exotic and indigenous.
In autumn there is an equally beautiful display of trees and shrubs decked in red and orange finery.
The lodge is elegant with "olde worlde" charm, under thatch and crammed with antiques and lovely art-work.
Nutwoods Park is intimate and we offer both self catering and B&B accommodation in our tastefully decorated suites and cottage. Breakfast is on request.
We offer five star meals by appointment for private parties of 10 or more, catering to our guests’ individual needs. We are renowned for our exquisite catering and attentive service.
We are popular as an intimate wedding reception venue and our magnificent garden is ideal for wedding photographs.
