“A great little stop for a night or two!”
A bath overlooking an incredible valley warmed up by firewood. I think that is enough to get you here!
I think the name is a give away that this place is pretty laid back, in all things! It’s a backpackers with a garden that accommodates a few tents, with further sites available into the forest. It’s a great little place to chill out around the nightly bonfire and have a few beers at the backpacker bar. There is minimal available for campers, but if you have tent and don’t mind a couple nights without electricity then this is the place.
The bathrooms always had hot water, and were shared with the backpackers, and the pool is nice for a dip after an awesome walk through the forest.
Hogs Back is another reason to visit this part of the country, where JR Tolkien came up with Lord of the Rings, and it’s not hard to see why. The town itself is very chilled out with a local supermarket and a few pubs and bottle stores. There are some incredible walks around, and you’ll probably be offered some mushrooms from the locals (but not ones for cooking!)
