Stone Hill is a 4 Star self catering and pet friendly venue perched on a hill overlooking Magaliesburg and with BIG views towards the Magaliesberg. Each of our 10 units have both a bath and shower in the bathrooms, are fully fitted and equipped with everything for your needs including airconditioned bedrooms, fans / electric blankets and indoor fireplaces. We have either king size or twin beds per bedroom, according to your needs. Each cottage has a TV with 11 selected DSTV channels as well as DVD/CD players. If you would like the full DSTV Bouquet, please bring your own decoder and card. All you would need to bring would be your food, personal toiletries and pool towels, weather permitting! Each unit has a fully fenced garden with a private outside garden shower, each has a large bricked braai off the patio and each one is entirely separate from the other units. There is a 5 km walking trail on the farm and of course there is a central swimming pool & 2 doggy pools for dogs.

My husband and I had the most fabulous weekend at Stone Hill together with our dog Jules. The accommodation was superb, the hospitality off the chart amazing and Jules was so welcomed and loved the walks and the freedom of being off lead and out in the countryside. Amazing weekend, can't wait to go back !!

Centurion, South Africa46 contributions23 helpful votes
We enjoyed every minute of our stay, and our dogs too. We stayed in the Wild Olive Tree cottage, and it was super comfortable. So well equipped, with solar power and a gas stove. And the splash pool was just the best thing on a hot summer afternoon! The weekend breakfast at the lapa was so delicious, and the hosts were all very friendly and helpful. There are lots of different butterfly and bird species to be observed, even in the cottage garden and surrounding trees. And of course on the (up to) 5 km walk too. And the best part is that the whole property is dog friendly - a very rare thing for upmarket accommodation in South Africa! I would definitely recommend staying here!

Our stay for two nights at Stonehill for 2 guests and 2 pups was an amazing experience. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating, their attention to detail and investment in the properties is apparent and the location is really well suited for a pet friendly environment. I would like to make special reference to the great care taken to keep all the public spaces clean, the trials are well managed and clear. Each unit you stay in has its own fenced yard with a pool and braai area so the dogs can have space to play and are still safe and secure. Loved our stay and will definitely return.

The best place that I have been to so far that is pet friendly. They cater to all of my fur babies needs and were introduced to new experiences. Was such a joy to see them have so much fun and freedom.

A truly pet-friendly holiday destination. We were welcomed and hosted by friendly staff. We have 3 dogs, two yorkies and one labrador, who were all made to feel at home away from home. Each cottage is private and detached from the others which allowed us to enjoy a special family weekend away. And the fact that this gem is just an hour's drive from the city makes it an even rarer find.

friendly welcome, comfortable cottage with all the necessary amenities for a relaxing stay. Dogs loved the pools after their brisk walks. Saw some lovely birds including Hornbills. Will definitely come again. Thanks Caroline, Mark and Giles. Oh and don't forget the amazing fresh bread and eggs!

We arrived in the coldest of November days, rainy as well. We read 32mm of rain at the guage at skeleton bench... Our fire was all prepped so not long after arrival we were toasty warm, the dogs settled onto their blankets and for two days we truly chilled. The next 2 days were for great walks, easy to follow, paths beautifully maintained, the river walk a delight for the dog swimmers. All in all we could not have asked for anything else. The truly wonderful thing is we new our dogs were safe at all times.

A lovely family getaway within an hours drive from Johannesburg. The cottage has everything needed and more. The facilities are great for taking your doggies along too. Such a well run place by a family passionate about hospitalty. The farm baked bread is a must. The only negative is our stay was too short, hoping to be back when we get a chance.
