A beautifully well kept unpretentious cottage. Babbing brook enhances the serenity of your stay, situated at the foothill of towering mountains amidst vineyards and orchards in full bloom. The personal one on one wine tasting was my highlight. Thank you Joy for your inspirational stories and sharing..

Had a lovely stay at StonyBrook Cottages - very well appointed and comfortable beds. A wonderful setting would have enjoyed a few more nights so that we could have walked more - good location as quiet but close enough to town.

We’ve been fans of Stony Brook wines for many years but it was our first stay at the cottages. This is an excellent alternative if you’re tired of staying in town and want a more relaxed, rustic experience with incredible views. Bonus: the main town with all its restaurants is only a few kilometers away. Do yourself a favor and visit the farm dam (pictured). Thank you Joy and co for a brilliant stay and, as-ever, impressive wines!

Thanks so much for the very kind review! I'm so glad your first stay at the cottages was a good one. Yes, that's exactly what we aim to offer - a rustic, relaxed getaway from the hustle and bustle in a picturesque environment. That photograph is gorgeous - I would love to use it for some promotional material if you would allow it? My email is craig@stonybrook.co.za Thanks again - what made my day (and my year so far) is that you are still enjoying the wines. Please feel free to come and stay again any time!

Absolutely loved our stay at Stony Brook! We were upgraded to cottage 5 which was so spacious, clean and homey. We loved the fire and had arranged a bottle of wine from the winery to be put in our cottage. The grounds are so beautiful, surrounded by mountains and a little stream. The dam is a must see with the most picturesque views. We will definitely be returning here. The wine tasting was so enjoyable, under the trees, tasting delicious wine.
