Offering country living a “Stones Throw” from the University town of Grahamstown, you will find Indlu and Thorntree units nestled on the hilltops where you can enjoy panoramic vistas and witness gorgeous sunsets from a spacious garden setting. Situated as an ideal stopover between the Garden Route and KwaZulu Natal, just 2km`s off the N2, outside Grahamstown, home to the National Arts Festival and City of Saints and Scholars. While we are renovating at Stone`s Hill we have a lovely new addition of our 30 on Oatlands Accommodation option, centrally located in the Oaktree lined suburb of Oatlands. We look forward to welcoming you.

An easy journey to the Thomas Baines Nature Reserve or the Great Fish River Game Reserves (comprising of the Andries Vosloo Kudu Reserve, the Double Drift Nature Reserve and the Sam Knott Nature Reserve). A Stones Throw accommodation is just over an hour from Port Elizabeth and is easily accessible for day-trips to the Addo Elephant National Park, home to the Big Seven.

A Stone’s Throw is within easy reach of a host of activities to offer from the Makana Botanical Gardens to the Albany History Museum, Natural Sciences Museums, and Observatory Museums, which has the only genuine Victorian Camera Obscura in the southern hemisphere. Grahamstown is also home to the National English Literary Museum, the Library of African Music, as well as the SA Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity, where you can see exhibits relating to the coelacanth - the fossil fish that was thought to be extinct but still lives off the South African coast. When youve finished all that you can soak up the ambience of the vibrant pubs, student vibe and eateries or post a letter from the Oldest Official Post Box in South Africa.
