Stonecrop is a restful retreat set in a park-like garden with hundreds of beautiful, mature, indigenous trees and a tranquil Koi pond. Warm hospitality is offered to any traveller, whether on business or whether your journey is for pleasure. The property is set in typical Lowveld bushveld habitat where there is an abundant bird-, plant-, and animal life. The units comprise five self-catering with private entrances, furnished with most amenities guests could need for a comfortable stay. Three of the units are studio apartments in the same building in a stable-like configuration while two are upper- and lower-level flats in a separate free-standing building. Best suited in its entirety to small family groups and also ideal for couples. Stonecrop is 12km from Kruger International Mpumalanga Airport and 40 minutes' drive from the Numbi Gate to Kruger National Park, South Africa.

Thank you to Leonora & Alan for such great hospitality as always. Beautiful serene gardens that welcome peace & tranquility. Units are always packed for your convenience with special touches.
Absolutely recommended from 1 night stays to longer vacation stays.
Rose does a sterling job cleaning up with a lot of consideration taken.
Truly a piece of paradise and it felt like home away from home. The self catering units has everything you need to make your stay very comfortable with a little extra’s Incase you didn’t have time to stop for milk ; )
Will definitely recommend becoming a regular with Leonora & Alan! Their hospitality is unheard of.

The most amazing place to be spending some "quiet time" away from the city! Friendly and welcoming hosts with superbly comfortable chalets, all the luxuries that you may require and exceptionally well-equipped with so much attention to detail. We could see Eleonora's "hand" in absolutely everything...down to the sewing kit in the bedside table drawer! We can't wait to go back there again! Thank you so much for all your hospitality, Alan and Eleonora!

We received a friendly welcome from our very hospitable hosts. Our rooms were very clean and tidy. The beds were very comfortable and the linen superb. Lovely and relaxing setting. We also enjoyed the rusks, coffee and fresh milk in our fridge! Will definitely stay there again!

We stayed at Stonecrop as a stopover on route to Kruger National Park on New Year's Day 2014. Not only were our hosts unbelievably hospitable and helpful; the accommodation itself was superb and we could really relax after a strenuous 10 hour drive from Durban. Stonecrop is situated quite close (a short drive) to any amnesties that you might require, yet it is far enough removed from the hustle and bustle to be able to relax totally.

The garden is an absolute paradise with abundant birdlife. Everywhere there are personal touches that have been added which add extra interest and ambience . It was indeed an unforgettable experience and we will most certainly stay there again and can strongly recommend a stay at this lovely haven.

If you are going to Nelspruit or White River you must stay over at Stonecrop Guest Farm. The rooms are excellent with a very reasonable price. They are located between Nelspruit and White River. So you can easily reach both.

We loved the Moon glow room, it was warm and inviting and well equipped. We loved the personal touches of tea and rusks. Walking through the garden makes you feel as if you're in a private rain forest, thoroughly enjoyable, Alan and Leonora were very welcoming and made us feel at home. Thank you. Can't wait to go back! Was an excellent end to our honeymoon.

I am in the last hours of an incredible stay at Stonecrop Guest Farm. After spending the past week here with Alan & Lenora, I have come to know this place as my home away from home & my host as my extended family! They have created a very special paradise & take pride in their place. From the moment I arrived, I felt welcomed. Their attentiveness to their guests is outstanding! As I head back to the United States, I know I will be longing to return to Stonecrop & counting the days. Thank you for everything and for making me feel at home in your home! I'll see you next year & the year after & the year after that!
PS Their dog & cat will keep any animal lover company.

Stonecrop is a wonderful place for a weekend escape from the rat race. Beautiful and well-equipped units all with private entrances. Surrounded by lovely trees and a variety of birds. An amazing view over the valley from where you relax on the deck. All of this as well as Alan and Leonora who are extremely friendly hosts. We enjoyed every minute of our stay!

We had a great weekend at Stonecrop. It was so refreshing and peaceful. The rooms were beautiful and clean. The place is very quiet, which helped us forget about the busy world we live in. We will definitely be coming back again!!!

We stayed at Stonecrop Lodge this last weekend while attending a wedding in White River - WOW!! What a stunning find! From the personal greeting from Alan, to the little touches in the room (KitKats on the table, Milk and juice in the fridge and delicious rusks ready for tea). We stayed in the Gold Moss room - the style and decor of the room was stunning, and everything was neat and tidy. We didn't really use the self catering facilities, but the kitchen was better stocked than my own kitchen at home.
The view from our room was also so beautiful and peaceful - I could have sat out there all day. We will definitely be back so we can enjoy the patio and look-out point a bit more. Plus there is so much more to discover in White River and the surrounding areas. Thanks again Alan and Leonora - you have a real gem there!
