This stay was the highlight of our trip from Cape Town East London and back again. The farm is in the most beautiful location, a really magical spot of beauty and stillness. We stayed in Bushman's Cottage - it had a superb view, a heater in the bedroom, a stoep to sit and watch the Karoo sunrise, and it was... More

Great views, great area, great hosts. The Redstone hills are beautiful!! Nice break from the city. The accommodation was more than comfortable and the meals were huge. The horse riding was really enjoyable. The road around to the Cango caves was an amazing experience.

What a beautiful place! We stayed in the Aloe Gardens cottage; the scenery was stunning! Oom Hermanus and tannie Petro were amazing hosts, and they gave us a warm welcome. The facilities are great, and the birds even more so! :) Definitely planning a return visit and will stay longer next time! Simply beautiful.

Red Stone Hills was really lovely. Well equipped and good facilities. We got an upgrade because of a burst water pipe, so we were lucky. Wood for sale on the property ! Staff very helpful with sorting out a small geyser issue ! Great place.

My husband and I stayed in Red Rock cottage for two nights. It was just perfect. We were warmly welcomed by Petro who cooked us the most delicious meal the following night. The scenery was spectacular. We had not seen anything like the red stone hills anywhere else in South Africa. Just beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed the bird life and... More

Saw an article of the Red Stone Hills in the "Karoo Cook Book" and had it on my bucket list.... I said to my husband as we rounded the curve and they came into view " I sure am glad I didn't miss seeing this in my life-time!" I am 70! He agreed that at 81 years of age he... More

We have recently stayed at Red Stone Hills in Bushman's Cottage. What a magical place - full of character and history. Petro is a great hostess and we appreciated having our dinners delivered to the cottage. The geography of the area is very interesting; and the birding is very good. Wonderful sunsets and beautiful scenery. We loved our stay there... More

21 keen birders have visited the Red Stone hills again - it's a delightful place with very good accommodation available in characterful cottages. The area is magnificent and the name is exactly what it's about - the most beautiful and unique red hills. The hosts are so enthusiastic and keen to please that a visit there is just so pleasing....

As always a super welcome to such a lovely unspoilt spot,we came once again with different friends and they loved it as much as we do. Hopefully we will be back again soon. Petro's Barbecues delivered to the house are superb. Chris and Lyn

This has been my third stay at Red Stone Hills and I will return time and time again - peaceful, beautiful and revitalizing. Walking, riding and just being surrounded by the beauty is soul restoring and allows you to beleive we all have a purpose.
