Enjoy a fantastic getaway in nature, with a good conscience. Stonehaven’s owners made the decision to preserve the indigenous plant and bird life. No chemicals are used on the farm or in the eco cabin houses. The farm itself remains as close to its original fynbos landscape as possible, with our farm manager treating Stonehaven as a living, breathing organism, inspired by permaculture practices. Our eco cabins were built and designed in the most sustainable and eco-friendly way possible.

Cape floral kingdom - species of fynbos

Our cozy cabins are all placed in the middle of the original fynbos landscape. Visitors to the farm will be inspired by the 300 million-year-old Proteas while meandering through the farm’s Protea Walk. Fynbos is the most studied vegetation type outside of Europe, with many scientists such as Charles Darwin being enthralled by the diversity and long lifespan of the plant species. The King Protea, named because it resembles a crown, is the largest of all proteas in the Cape Floristic Region.
