We really enjoyed our sadly short stay at Stonecutters. The staff are efficient, friendly and competent. The actual accommodation and facilities are extremely well thought out and are there to make the guests feel really relaxed. Overall the establishment is very organised and one gets a sense of continuous improvement. It is a pity that we were there for such a short period.
Thanks for a wonderful stay Anonymous, South Africa

My husband and I wanted a quick getaway - as the home away from home - and we got precisely that when we stayed at Stonecutters. The staff were friendly and hospitable. With Lydenburg and Dullstroom not too far away, we had the pleasures of being out and about and also enjoying the relaxing atmosphere of the lodge. Fly fishing was a must and with no experience whats so ever, we enjoyed learning a new art and had fun in the process! :)

Stonecutters Lodge is one of the very best establishments we have stayed at and certainly exceeded our expectations. What impressed us the most is their attention to detail in all aspects of the services they provide. Well done to Lesley, Margi and their staff.

Wonderful welcome, well cared for. Only negative - it was very dry and brown (mid winter) - would have been nice to have the gardens around the buildings watered.
Stonecutters Lodge is a holiday, trout fishing and conference venue of exceptional quality. Travel to the Mpumalanga Highlands, just 2.5 hours from OR Tambo International Airport, and stay in this 4 Star graded lodge. The lodge lies between Dullstroom and Lydenburg, in the heart of South Africa’s fly and trout fishing territory. Whether you are planning a holiday or weekend away, organizing a small conference or looking for excellent trout fishing, Stonecutters will accommodate you in superlative style.
The lodge lies in a beautiful setting between mountains and river, and offers a base for malaria-free holidays and tours to nearby game lodges and well-known tourist attractions. Stonecutters is also an ideal stopover for the Kruger National Park and the many private game lodges, and is accessed by just 1 km of dirt road off the main Dullstroom/Lydenburg R540.
Accommodation at Stonecutters is of the highest standard, with each facility providing a different ambience. Stonecutters can sleep up to 22 guests on the estate and the lodge is fully serviced and equipped. Selected DStv channels, SABC and e-TV channels are available for guests' enjoyment.
The lodge comprises family houses, Stone Cottage and the Trout House, while The Cobbles studios are ideal for couples. Recently refurbished, the lodge is furnished and equipped to the highest standards. Dinners and breakfasts are available by prior arrangement.
Stone Manor is the gathering point for guests at Stonecutters. The luxurious building houses the reception rooms and dining area, the pub, and the conference boardroom. A large fireplace dominates the double-volume lounge and dining area, where approximately 20 guests can dine in comfort. Furnishings are stylish throughout, impressing even the most discerning guests. The Cat’s Whiskers pub, with its cosy fireplace and DStv, can be a great place to meet new friends.
Stone Manor is set in a natural garden where a bubbling waterfall cascades into an indigenous pond. The patio fronting the house is a shaded outdoor area for meals and relaxation, where guests can enjoy breakfast or sundowners on the wooden deck jutting over the water.
Stonecutters is ideal for exclusive management meetings, strategic planning sessions and team-building getaways. The boardroom is well equipped, including data projector for big screen projection of presentations, videos, DVDs and DStv, and up to 20 delegates can be seated in a variety of configurations. Day conferences are catered for, and a comprehensive office provides backup photocopying and printing, as well as fax and e-mail facilities.
There is a selection of varied team-building activities to choose from. With the excellent waters available at the lodge, a fly-fishing clinic with expert tuition can be arranged, including a competition with prizes. Stonecutters have hosted numerous blue-chip businesses from various industries and delegates are assured of exclusivity and personal service from management and staff. If you are planning that special occasion, be it a birthday, engagement party or a small wedding, Stonecutters is an ideal small venue sleeping 22 people sharing.
The Stonecutter’s waters, two dams and 3 km of river, are fully managed and this, coupled with a generous re-stocking programme, ensures excellent fishing. 'Catch and Release’ is encouraged for all river fish, and trout caught and taken from the dams are charged for. Only fly-fishing equipment and methods are permitted, and fly-fishing clinics can be arranged. Regrettably, day visitors are not permitted to fish these waters.
