About Stone Hill

Are you in need of a warm and relaxed getaway in the country. Within an hour from Johannesburg or Pretoria, nestled in the hills of the Magaliesberg, on a private mountain bushveld farm, with stunning views, is Stone Hill.

Perched high above the distant village of Magaliesburg, we offer seven top class, fully-equipped luxurious self-catering timber cottages, accommodating from two to eight guests each. All have open plan lounges with log fireplaces, fully fitted kitchens, bedrooms and full bathrooms. Each is individually fenced for pets and each has a large verandah and braai area.

All the cottages are separate and private and are at least 20 metres from each other. We are family and pet friendly and we welcome all breeds of house trained and socialized dogs. The small splash pool is central and within easy reach and the view down the valley is breathtaking.

Stone Hill facilities are designed and equipped to give you the feeling of home from home and to make your stay that much more comfortable. There are TV’s in all of cottages with selected DStv channels for your entertainment.

The farm supports indigenous small game and birdlife and we have introduced a 5 km walking trail where your dog/s can run unleashed and there are concrete benches for the weary to sit and catch their breath! Please remember to pack water bowls and drinks for the walk!

The Magaliesberg are almost 100 times older than the Himalayas and the area is historically and archaeologically rich. It is here that Mankind originated, in the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site. Today there is still evidence of Stone Age and Iron Age early man to be found. Stone Hill is only 11 kms from Maropeng Visitor’s Centre and 15 kms from the Sterkfontein Caves.

Over the centuries, many wars have been waged across the hills, the most recent being the Anglo Boer War. At Stone Hill, a site has been found from that period and the pieces are displayed for visitors who may be interested. The collection is dated somewhere between 1899 to1902.

Stone Hill offers privacy, peace and seclusion and it is where your internal clock instinctively slows to the rhythm of the bush. The welcome is warm and the attention is personalised so come and barbeque under the stars and hear the call of the jackals. The perfect escape! Stone Hill is a wonderful cure for stressed city living.

                                          What a wonderful surprise to have found such quality accommodation that is pet friendly and only about 60 minutes from JHB. Restful, quiet, spacious and great walks. My beagle loved it and i thoroughly enjoyed the break from the busyness of JHB. Highly recommended.

                                          Great stay, in a truly "pet friendly" environment. Our house was private and very quiet with amazing views.  The dogs loved the enclosed dog run and the fenced in yard.  Our hosts were so accommodating and had thought of so many little things to make our stay really comfortable.  Will definitely return for another visit.

                                          We enjoyed our stay very much at Stone Hill. It's a place where you can just relax and enjoy nature. We slept well, the unit was equipped with everything we needed.
