We had a wonderful stay at Stony brook and I would highly recommend it to anyone passing by Franschhoek. Joy is the sweetest of hosts! The setting is just magnificent with the backdrop of the mountains! Make sure to do a wine tasting of their superb white and red wines!

Our stay at Stony Brook was great from the moment we arrived. We were greeted with a lovely glass of Sauvignon Blanc and two very nice Dogs. Joy & Family were very helpful throughout our stay and nothing was too much trouble. The cottages were comfortable & clean and provided all we needed for our stay. The pool was very peaceful and great to cool off on a hot day.

The location of Stony Brook is perfect taking just 5 minutes to drive into town. If you like eating out you must speak to Joy as she recommended some great restaurants including Ryan's Kitchen & Cafe Des Arts.

Thanks for making our last 4 nights in SA so enjoyable despite the rain.

Hope to see you in the future.

Ian

Room Tip: Cottage 1 is very nice with great views and parking

We are very fond of Stoney Brooke wine and was very pleased to learn that they now have cottages to rent as well.

We stayed over the long weekend and enjoyed it very much.

The cottages are well equiped and very neat and tidy.We would have loved to make use of the fire place but then had fantastic weather!!

We will surely be back as the value for money, the setting and the tranquillity is well worth it.

Thanks Nigel and Joy.

I was recently staying in wine country for a wedding and Stonybrook was recommended as one of the guest venues. I am so glad that it was! The area around the cottages is lovely...very hilly and quite different looking than the more flat land where my friends were staying. There's also a hike behind to a beautiful reservoir. It's close enough to downtown Franschhoek to go for a nice dinner or shopping, but it's far enough that you feel like you're out in the country. The accommodations themselves were great and very affordable. They are each outfitted with the essentials, plus a fully stocked kitchen and several braii stands (we used them, they were great).

I would advise using the GPS coordinate feature to find the place, and once you do, you'll be happy to stay!

Highly recommended and definitely will go back. We, family of 5 (4 adults and 1 child) stayed at Stony Brook Cottages the last week of Dec 2013 to the first week of Jan 2014. The cottages are set right at the foot of the mountain, very neat and spacious and the interior design is fantastic. From time of booking, Joy stayed in touch with us and I am pleased to say both her and Nigel, their staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The beds are very comfortable and big in both cottages that we occupied and big and none of us ours. Oh and the bathrooms and showers are spacious and luxurious. The wines are great - must have/purchase. Stony Brook is one of the best self-catering venues. Definitely value for money. i loved everything about Stony Brook. Joy, Nigel and team - fantastic job. you will definitely see us again. No TV and radio - heaven.

Room Tip: There is no fitness centre and children activities but the walks and swimming pool served the purpose.
