Stonehaven Eco Cabins: A Secluded Escape in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley

Stonehaven Eco Cabins: A Secluded Escape in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley

Reach for the stars at this heavenly hideaway.

When owners Kathy and David Robins first set foot on Stonehaven Farm in 2011, they fell in love with its vistas and “the specialness of the place”. Tucked into the foot of the Babylon Toren Mountain, Stonehaven’s undeniable tug reeled them in and fulfilled their 20-year dream of owning a small farm; a place where they could escape routine, reconnect with nature and live consciously.

In 2019, the couple’s plans to create self-catering accommodation came to fruition in the form of two exquisitely considered eco-cabins and a three-bedroom cottage, where “sustainability”, “eco-friendly” and “permaculture” are not merely buzzwords, but the cornerstones of the entire 20-hectare property. Committed to conservation, with the added value of style and seclusion, the cabins are kitted with the best in local homeware and design. (Think Mungo towels, Mia Mélange baskets and Paul de Jongh coffee mugs.)

Stonehaven Eco Cabins in Hemel-en-Aarde

Whether you choose to hop on one of the farm’s mountain bikes and ride around the impossibly beautiful Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, picnic under the ancient oak tree in a secret corner of the farm, kayak around the dam, or enjoy sundowners from the rim of your view-drenched hot tub, you’re bound to leave Stonehaven feeling energised and inspired.
