Stone Hill - Your Pet Friendly Self-Catering Cottages.

Minimum stay 2 nights

If you are looking for a secluded getaway, within an hour’s drive from Johannesburg or Pretoria, you will find Stone Hill nestled among the hills of the Magaliesberg.

Situated on a private bushveld farm and perched high above the distant village of Magaliesburg, Stone Hill offers 6 top class, fully equipped and luxurious self-catering timber cottages, accommodating from 2 to 8 guests each. All have open plan lounges, fully fitted kitchens, bedrooms and full bathrooms.

We are family and pet friendly and welcome children of all ages and most breeds of house trained and socialized dogs and other pets by arrangement. Each cottage and its garden is entirely encompassed by a fence for your pet’s peace of mind!

We require dog owners to please remember to keep rabies jabs up to date and that dogs are medicated for ticks and fleas before coming to Stone Hill.

There is a wide variety of indigenous small game and birdlife at Stone Hill. A number of sightings include Jackal, Duiker, Warthog, Porcupine, Snakes, Ticks, Scorpions, Bats, Vultures, a large variety of insects and birds. You need to walk carefully and quietly to see them as they are notoriously shy! For the flora lovers, a mosaic of indigenous plants can be seen on the farm.

We at Stone Hill pride ourselves on our warm welcome and personal but unobtrusive attention. We offer you peace and seclusion and a place where your internal clock will instinctively slow to the rhythm of the bush.

The perfect escape! Stone Hill is a wonderful cure for stressed city living!

Our cottage at stone hill was thoughtfully and tastefully equipped. Everything for ones comfort is available.Outdoor shower a great touch. We loved the views down the valley. Fenced cottage garden was great for our 3 dogs. Spacious verandah. The ponies visited us at the gate. Walks/ trails are very well -maintained and some are flat enough for oldies. Our hosts were delightful . Easy access from Johannesburg. Next time when it is warmer we will use the natural pool. Lights in the braai area very thoughtful. We had a great stay but too short

Very well organised and welcoming. All that one needed was available and more. Peaceful and good for the soul. Very clean and well equipped.

It was a brilliant weekend. Caroline and Mark run a fantastic resort. I will definitely be going back.


Mark van Rooyen Nov 2013

This is an excellent pet friendly establishment. Friendly host Caroline has a rag tag bunch of 11 dogs on site so if you aren't a dog person, this isn't the place for you. Our dog, however, thought this was fantastic and had her best holiday ever! We stayed in the Garden Suite, and whilst a little lacking in character, it was exceptionally clean and well thought out. I am sure we will return.

Stone Hill offered exactly what we needed - tranquility, peaceful environment and lots of fresh air where one could recharge one's batteries.
Our hospitable hosts were caring and sincere. We really enjoyed our weekend there.
