“It’s hard to stop and sniff the roses when you’re hurtling along life’s highways at breakneck speed. What you need is to slow down, take the scenic route and treat yourself to a weekend of peace, quiet and clean country air. Sugarbush Hill awaits you.”
Sugarbush Hill lies on the northern slopes of a peaceful valley in the Magaliesberg Mountain Range. We are on the Rustenburg side of the range, about 50 km from Hartebeespoort Dam and 30 km from Rustenburg. It takes just over an hour to get to us from Fourways and an hour and a quarter from the eastern suburbs of Pretoria.
All our units are set at the foot of a hill and all have their own braais and deep stoeps with panoramic mountain views. Guests are welcome to explore the 8Ha of indigenous bush.
Sugarbush Hill gets its name from the Common Sugarbush, Protea caffra, which can be found in abundance on the hillside just behind the units. All the cottages have been named after indigenous plants found in the Magaliesberg area. Wherever possible, alien species have been done away with or replaced with indigenous plants. As a result, our bird life is prolific and slowly but surely we are creating a natural haven where city folk can enjoy the peace and quiet of the Buffelspoort valley. We have identified and tagged a lot of indigenous trees on our property, so if you would like to brush up on your tree knowledge, bring along a tree book and spend some time looking them up.
Sugarbush Hill is a 3-star establishment, after having been graded by the Tourism Grading Council of S.A. This means that guests can be assured of certain minimum standards.
