Run by a lively, splendid couple, this place is an absolute gem! Surrounded by forests with noone else around for km's, the fresh dewy air and pine scent, and cosy fire warmed rooms, this rustic & authentic abode leaves you feeling warm and peaceful inside.

Fantastic stop midway Hoedspruit - St Lucia! We were warmly welcomed by Colette and Gerard + their animals. The farm is beautiful, lots of flowers and scenic views. We were honored to have dinner with the family - real ‘boerenkos’ and to feed the baby cows in the morning. Breakfast was fabulous as well. Conversation was great, we felt sorry we had to leave to our next location. Gerards’ enthusiasm for farm life is contageous. Colette will make you feel at home!

We had a one week stay at Rocks and Roses and had an excellent time. The family is very kind and helpful, rooms are clean and the farm is nice to visit. Being myself more from the city, I really enjoyed picking up my own tomatoes!..This place is obviously more about being in nature and relaxing, with small waterfalls and hiking trails around. There are two beautiful double rooms inside the house, and outside shacks for more "adventurous" travelers, which we could try :) Also enjoyed the great stargazing. Definitely recommend this place! 20km from Swaziland and not too far from Kruger park and other spots not to be missed in South Africa.

We spent one night at Colettes and loved it. The road to the cottage is quiet an adventure but doable even with a small car. The room is beautifully decorated and cosy. We were there on a very cold day and Colette had a gas heater ready in our room to warm it up. We also had dinner with Colette which was delicious. Colette is an excellent host, making the stay a great experience! We highly recommand a stay at this nice B&B.

Our family of four travelled to the area for just one night and we couldn't have stumbled on a better place to stay. Colette was efficient and helpful during the booking process - and was more than happy to assist with anything she could. She was flexible with arrival times and came to greet us at the car as we arrived. (Though the two small, well-behaved dogs beat her to it!) We booked two rooms and both were beautiful, warm, comfortable, and thoughtfully filled with anything you could need to unwind after a long drive - or just to escape for the weekend. We instantly relaxed around the braai area and enjoyed the stunning views for the rest of the evening. (And, really, the views alone are worth the price!) The beds are very comfortable; we all slept very well. We braaied for dinner and brought everything with us that we could need. The B&B supplied the charcoal and firelighters - though Colette certainly would have provided us with anything else if we'd forgotten it. That said, when we return (which we definitely plan to do), we will opt for a braai with the views on one night - and dinner with our hosts on another. That's because breakfast was filling, scrumptious, and again, totally worth it. The walks around the property are a must - especially if you're not often on a working farm in the middle of a forest. The waterfalls are marvellous - and close enough to make it a comfortable walk. And, don't worry at all about "working farm" - it's not loud or smelly and the employees are kind and unobtrusive. As soon as they leave, it's exceptionally quiet. All in, we're pretty certain you couldn't find more welcoming rooms or hosts - and you definitely can't beat the value here. We're definitely coming back and will make Rocks and Roses our destination rather than booking it as just accommodation while we're in the area for other reasons.
