“A great Retreat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2011

We arrived in SA for a two month stay and spent the first two nights here to recover from our flight. It is isolated on top of a hill with beautiful views into the distance, but a close drive into town for groceries. The cabin (Buffalo Thorn Tree) was spacious and comfortable. There is a nice walking path along the property perimeter.
Caroline, the owner, is a wonderful source of information about local activities, and recommendations for restaurants.
Our favorite things to do were the Rhino/Lion Preserve and Meropanga - Cradle of Humankind.

My wife & I spent our 17 year wedding anniversary at Stone Hill with our two children, 2 Staffordshire terriers. The cottage was beautifully clean, well equipped and comfortable. DSTV has recently been added so bring your smart card!

The walks were lovely, the farm nicely maintained and the pool area was great. The cottage has a nice secure garden area for our dogs and we will definitely be going back.

Lovely and relaxing and just what we needed to unwind before the hectic Xmas rush. Our babies had a ball and enjoyed every minute of the large open spaces to run and explore while on the walks.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2009

My wife and I loved this place. Stone Hill offers four self-catering wooden cottages on a gentle slope in the Magaliesberg, within easy reach of Sterkfontein Caves, Maropeng (Cradle of Humankind) and other attractions. Each sleeps 4 people in cozy comfort, and good-humoured hosts Caroline and Mark appear to have thought of everything. A trio of Shetland ponies comes around for a snack each morning (we stocked up on carrots and apples), and there are birds everywhere. You can cool off in a nearby pool, and evenings are best spent drinking good wine around the barbecue fire. We have to say that Stone Hill is good for the soul, even though there's no such thing. Oh, and you're welcome to bring your dog. Note: My high rating may seem a little excessive, but it was really that good. Visit www.stone-hill.co.za
