ACCOMMODATION

Welcome to Rosemary Hill, where we invite you to experience the charm of our farm accommodations. Whether you’re attending a wedding, planning a corporate break-away, or seeking a memorable mini-break with your loved ones, our diverse range of accommodations is ready to cater to your needs. Discover the tranquility of our surroundings, indulge in the comforts of our unique amenities, and create lasting memories in the heart of nature. At Rosemary Hill, your stay is more than just accommodation – it’s an unforgettable experience.

We understand that it can be frustrating when our accommodations are fully booked over the weekends at Rosemary Hill. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. It’s important to note that the high demand is often due to advance bookings by bridal couples, which reserve all the lodging well ahead of time.

However, we have a solution that might work well for you. If your work allows you to be flexible with your location, we encourage you to consider booking a stay with us from Sunday to Wednesday. During these weekdays, we usually have more availability, and you can enjoy our beautiful surroundings while working remotely. It’s a great opportunity to experience Rosemary Hill in a calmer and more peaceful setting.

For those who can only plan their getaways on weekends, we have an alternative option available. Our stunning sister venue, The Rosendal Country Retreat, located in the Free State, is just a 4-hour drive from Gauteng. It offers the same high standards and commitment to providing a remarkable experience, similar to what we offer at Rosemary Hill. The Rosendal Country Retreat is an ideal place to indulge in slow living and recharge amidst picturesque surroundings.

To find out more about The Rosendal Country Retreat and to make a booking, please visit www.therosendal.co.za. We assure you that you’ll receive the same level of hospitality and attention to detail that you would expect from Rosemary Hill.

We hope these options will provide you with the opportunity to enjoy a memorable stay with us, either during the weekdays at Rosemary Hill or at The Rosendal Country Retreat on weekends. Should you have any further questions or require assistance with your booking, please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly team. We look forward to welcoming you to one of our remarkable properties soon.

Please be aware that our premises function as a working farm, with trucks, tractors, staff, and maintenance teams actively engaged in their daily tasks of caring for and enhancing our facilities. Consequently, there may be ongoing construction activities near your unit during regular working hours. Additionally, we regret to inform you that while pets are allowed as day visitors, they are not permitted to stay overnight. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we are unable to make any exceptions in this matter. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Thank you!


THE GUESTHOUSE

5 ROOMS, 2 GUESTS EACH

Room 2-6. Originally built as classrooms with salvaged materials including antique windows and parquet flooring from sites in Pretoria’s “old east”. The classrooms were converted into guest rooms in 2012, but were later gutted in a fire in 2016. We had to rebuild the rooms in a period of three months due to the fact that we were fully booked almost 18 months in advance! We are proud of the contemporary spaces that have been created with the eclectic combination of existing infrastructure, recycled materials and modern furniture.

The Suite: The Waldorf School’s first matric class sat here and their blackboard was against the wall behind the fireplace! We rebuilt the rooms after the fire, this time creating a larger space with extra ablutions, ideal for the bridal party to get ready in their big day and to enjoy the beautiful view from the luxurious bathtub.

2024 Rates: R1 650 per night.
2025 Rates: R1 950 per night.


THE GARDEN COTTAGE

1 UNIT, 4 GUESTS

This charming free-standing thatch cottage is surrounded by beautiful trees, abundant birdlife, and breath-taking sunset views.

The open-plan living area has a bespoke kitchenette with all the essentials for a weekend stay on the farm. We recently added a spacious loft, thereby doubling the occupancy of the unit to 4. The large patio and braai area ensures that the Garden Cottage is the perfect spot for a lazy breakaway from the city.

The bedroom has a king-size bed with an electric blanket, and an en-suite bathroom with a shower and a free-standing bath. Amenities include Rosemary Hill body wash, soap, shampoo, lotion, insect repellent and room spray, as well as tissues and towels. It also boasts a spacious separate lounge with tea and coffee making facilities, fruit bowl, biscuits and rusks, hairdryer, heaters and a fan.

THE CABIN

1 UNIT, 2 GUESTS

This one-of-a-kind container cabin was such an adventure to design!  We learnt as we worked, and found creative ways to incorporate all the essential amenities required in a luxury cabin, with some fun, quirky features added.
We made use of various recycled building materials, from the actual shipping container (with it’s original floor planks!) to the cladding, ceiling materials, beadings, bricks and sanitary equipment, all the way through to the cooking-oil drums used to cast the concrete columns on which the frame rests!

The result of this labour of love is a bespoke double-storey unit with a queen-sized bed and unique free-standing bath upstairs – boasting views only surpassed once you discover the sunset views on the elevated chill net!  The cabin has a fully equipped kitchenette and bathroom with a shower (in addition to the free standing bath upstairs).

This unit is situated in Cabinville, just 200m from Rosemary Hill’s main venues and coffee shop.  If you would like to book the cabin and you are not a wedding or function guest, please note that there is a likelihood that you will hear the music and there may be guests returning to nearby rooms late at night.

2024 Rates: R3 650 per night.
2025 Rates: R3 950 per night.


THE PODS

3 UNIT, 2 GUESTS PER POD

These curved cabins were born from an idea we got after a friend shared a video of similar units abroad.  We made use of what we had and put our guys to work:  The result is a compact, well laid out space with all the essentials required for an overnight stay.  The beautifully appointed kitchenette & wardrobe unit designed by Raw studios adds a refined touch that elegantly compliments the modern decor.

The curved bathroom is quirky and unique with the tiled details sure to feature in many an Instagram post.  Guests can lounge on the private patio or star-gaze on their own chill net over-looking the large pond.

This unit is situated in Cabinville, just 200m from Rosemary Hill’s main venues and coffee shop.  If you would like to book the cabin and you are not a wedding or function guest, please note that there is a likelihood that you will hear the music and there may be guests returning to nearby rooms late at night.

THE BIGPOD

1 UNIT, SUITABLE FOR 4 ADULTS & 2 CHILDREN

 

The BigPod is our latest addition to Cabinville and was built in record time: 35 days from start to finish! Our team embraced lessons learnt from the Cabin and first three Pods and took this unit to another level. They pulled out all the stops and created a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that will be difficult to improve on.. All the interior cladding, beds and stairs are made from reclaimed wood and all design elements are functional yet eye-catching. The colour palette is light and comforting with various mood-light options used throughout.

The unit comprises a downstairs bedroom with a queen bed, spacious bathroom with a shower, an open plan, well-appointed kitchen, generous patio with a braai area. Upstairs has a spacious bedroom with a double bed and two single beds. There is an aircon unit upstairs for hot summer nights or to turn up the heat during winter… either way, this is the perfect spot to curl up with a good book or just laze on a lounger and watch the sunset.

This unit is situated in Cabinville, just 200m from Rosemary Hill’s main venues and coffee shop. If you would like to book the BigPod and you are not a wedding or function guest, please note that there is a likelihood that you will hear the music and there may be guests returning to nearby rooms late at night.
