Rosemary Hill is an organic farm situated on the eastern outskirts of Pretoria.  The estate boasts numerous unique event venues, a bustling coffee shop, 33 km of trails and various accommodation options.

This family-run business works in close co-operation with the The Kindergarten and The Waldorf School, which was started in Pretoria in 1972 and moved to Rosemary Hill Farm at Mooiplaats, in 1978.

During the 80’s and 90’s, the farm’s main focus was on development, farming and education.  In recent times, as the second generation has become more involved, commercial aspects have increased, as well as the added hospitality and leisure activities that continue to bring many visitors to the farm on a regular basis.

Rosemary Hill has built over 30 km of single track on the farm, using innovative methods to create exciting and challenging routes for riders and runners of all levels to enjoy. Trails are open 7 days a week and distances vary between 5, 10 and 33 km.  Bike rentals also available for your convenience and we offer a free bike wash on muddy days!  Adult day pass R40, Children day pass R25 and Bike Rentals R195 plus your day pass.

Rosemary Hill is proud to have Acrobranch as a preferred activity partner.  The Greenhouse Café at Rosemary Hill (situated 1.4 km from the main coffee shop) provides catering and refreshments for Acrobranch visitors.

Acrobranch activities from R50 per child and catering from R60 per child Booking essential!  Operating hours are from Wednesday to Sunday and Public Holidays from 8 am to 4 pm.

Horse Riding:
Rosemary Hill now offers inside and outside livery in beautiful new stables located next to the pecan nut orchard, with breathtaking outride trails and excellent facilities.  Horses at Rosemary Hill Stables receive quality, round-the-clock care and owners can enjoy the new, professional facilities such as arenas for multiple disciplines, canter track, outrides and cross-country trails.  The coffee shop is only a short, scenic ride from the stables.  Here you can enjoy a cappuccino and a freshly prepared light meal while your horse grazes peacefully in a nearby field. More info, as well as a dedicated website to follow soon.  Outrides from R250 per person.  Booking essential!

Latest Reviews
The place is breathtaking, it almost feels like you are not in Gauteng. I would recommend people to visit Rosemary Hill anytime.
I didn’t have a pleasant arrival though, the wait to be taken to our room was very long that we even missed having lunch at the restaurant as it was closing at 15:00 on that day. We had to go to the security guard a couple of times to ask him what the hold up was and he wasn’t too helpful.
