Things to do at Stonecrop or in and around Berry, South Coast NSW

Stonecrop’s views of Berry and the stunning South Coast scenery are among our guests’ favourite things about the property. These can be appreciated from the house, the gardens, the outdoor bathtub, or while walking around the property.

In the cooler months, snuggle up next to the open fire, watch a good movie, read a book, listen to some music, or enjoy your relaxing stay with friends or family.

If you’re not feeling active, you can’t beat some of our local South Coast scenery for a country drive. Try heading to Kangaroo Valley, out to Shoalhaven Heads or north from Berry to Foxground, and take some of the little roads off the highway. You can’t go wrong.

Golfers will enjoy the challenging Kangaroo Valley golf course, the easier Shoalhaven Heads course, and the scenic Gerringong course by the sea, or Nowra’s golf course by the river.

Families and kids can visit the Berry Donut Van, a popular attraction year round, or go to Grantie’s Maze in Foxground for lots of fun, only 5 minutes north of Berry. During the summer months, Jamberoo Theme & Water Park offers a great day for families just 35 minutes north.

Whether you decide to sit back on the verandah with a glass of wine, or explore the area, there’s a number of things you can do.

At Stonecrop

Stonecrop has plenty of space for backyard games, a firepit for campfires on clear evenings, DVDs and books for rainy days. We also have two friendly horses that enjoy a pet and being fed an apple or carrot from the backyard gate.

Just Relax

Enjoy the sounds of nature – listen for the frogs, crickets and cows in the evening and early morning. They can be heard from the house, grounds, or while enjoying a walk along the country lanes around Stonecrop.
