“Visit in May to Red Stone Hills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Read about Red Stone Hills in Die Burger and immediately decided to do a booking. We stayed in Aloe Gardens Cottage with a view of the farm with the backdrop of the Red Stone Hills. Our accommodation was neat and provided us with everything we needed.
Absolute peace and quiet with cows bellowing, hikes up to the mountains and surroundings.
Our host was perfect with information about the area. All in all, we will definately be going back.

We arrived at Red Stone Hills late in to the evening and were not able to appreciate the beautiful scenery until the morning - the views are simply fantastic. We had originally booked in to Aloe Garden but Petro and Hermanus had kindly moved us in to Ostrich Palace as it was slightly larger and had a patio and Braai we could use. After a fantastic night's sleep we awoke to clear blue sky and fantastic views of the mountains. After breakfast, we popped over to see Petro and Hermanus and they advised us possible routes we could take and mountain passes we could drive whilst exploring the Oudtshoorn area. We unfortuantely only had two nights and one day in the area, so had to squeeze a lot in to one day, but would definately want to return to enjoy the some of the walking route.

We did receive tis location from Jeanne, owner and host of Aasvoelkrans in Montagu, driving again for miles and miles and suddenly see the shilled turn left for "Red Stone Hills" into the "bush". After a slow but very doable ride we looked over Petro Potgieter's farm and cottages. Again as in the previous B&B planned a night but stayed 4. Good, big, quiet, privacy and nature oriented cottages. Breakfast is served in the central lodge; BBQ is served at your cottage. Forget shopping and or any other normal daily stuff. Just enjoy Petro's food, hiking around and a nice tour over the Prince Albert Pass. Try to relax and stay!

A very good place to just catch up with yourself, your family or what ever you need. The cottages is a little distance from each other so you have privacy and can do your own thing. Host are very welcoming and have a very good knowledge of everything.

Red Stone Hills was a chance discovery. As wildlife enthusiasts from Ireland we considered this the nicest place to enjoy scenery, plant and animal life in a friendly and peaceful corner of South Africa. The owners were so welcoming and pleased to host people interested in the environment and imparted a good knowledge of the geology and nature of their area. Although the cottages are self-catering, we opted to have hot dinners delivered to our cottage and we enjoyed two very tasty hot meals with all the trimmings. If you go there make sure to ask about the treks through the hills which offer 3-4 hours of wonderful scenery and solitude but are not too difficult for people of an average fitness. The only downside was walking along the public road and getting caught in the dust cloud when the occasional vehicle passed.

We stayed for one night in red stone hills. Lucky us, they gave us an upgrade so we enjoyed the bushman loge. A nice old farmer house with a pretty good interior. Our favorite was the porch with sun in the evening as well as in the morning.
Last but not least, the people welcome you with open arms and it was a really good atmosphere

The cottages at Red Stone Hills are set among some of the most beautiful scenery in South Africa. Every cottage has a different view and you could just relax and enjoy your surrounding while sitting on the verandas.The cottages are self catering and very well equipped with the option of having you breakfast st the farm house(Highly recommended)
If you do not want to cater for yourselves Petro and Hermanus will arrange for a light meal or braai to be brought to your cottage in the evening.The Braai will be set for you ready to light when you are ready.This is highly recommended.
We stopped three nights and thoroughly enjoyed every moment
