The owner was very friendly, the cottage was comfortable and warm, the surroundings were quiet, our dog was welcomed. We had one of the meals they offer which was delicious and nicely set out on our kitchen.We will definitely return and highly recommend it.

We had a fabulous stay at Red Stone Hills with the Potgieter family. The rustic cottage is nicely furnished and thoughtfully stocked with everything a guest needs. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and did short hikes during the day and building long fires at night. The surrounding scenery is amazing. The short hike and climb to 'Vensterkop' is well worth the effort to experience the awesome vistas. The family made us feel so welcome and was extremely helpful. A visit to this farm and surroundings is a must for any traveller! Maristha & Ricky


Port Elizabeth, South Africa

We were driving from Cape Town to Limpopo and this was our first nights stop over. We arrived and were shown to a lovely two bedroom cottage with kitchen and two bathrooms!
Our order for a BBQ was delivered, the fire set up. Next day we crossed the Swartberg Pass.

We stayed in the most basic cottage which was still well equipped and better than we expected. Lovely views and the owners are very friendly, taking my son out on a morning visit to feed the ostriches on their working farm. Order their delicious home made braai meals all brought to your door and the fire set for you to cook. Lovely stay.

We have been regular visitors since we discovered this little known treat in the Little Karroo in 2002. Throughout this time we have been touched by the sincere friendliness and hospitality of the hosts Petro and Hermanus.
When first arriving in the area one is struck by the breathtaking scenery of the red stone geological formations having their origin from the time of the breakup of the super continent Gondwana.
Very interesting hikes and 4x4 trails bore testimony to this. We always preferred the Bushman and Vineyard Cottages. These date from the 19th century and it was always such a treat to experience the cleanliness in these antique houses


Mossel Bay, South Africa

Having stayed at Red Stone Hills over 10 times in the past decade, we are in love with the place.
Not only for the beautifull scenery but also for the tranquility the place offers; we love to just sit on the stoep,watching birds or occasionally "oupa" tortoise passing by. Petro and her team offer great service; having dinner with a braaipak is very special; everything you need is provided, you only have to lit the fire. A stay in SA without Red Stone Hills would not be the same!
