WoodStay Lodge is situated on a small equestrian estate set on the outskirt of Newcastle. Hilldrop Self-catering offers guests a tranquil, farm-like atmosphere with dogs and ample bird life. We welcome day travellers, private visitors as well as professional people on business trips in Newcastle. Young and old are welcome. Farm animals love people but small children must be supervised at all times.

Accommodation is provided 4 self-catering units. Each unit comprises a well-equipped kitchen, a bathroom, and an open-plan living area and sleeping area. The units have living areas that lead out onto private patios with braai facilities. The units also feature TVs with DStv and 3 of the units have air-conditioning in the bedrooms.

Secure parking behind a remote control gate and a cleaning service is available.

The establishment is located 3 km from Black Rock Casino and 1.5 km from Newcastle Mall that has most of the popular restaurants and shops. New Castle has 3 golf courses within a radius of 30 km.

New Castle is halfway between Johannesburg/Pretoria and Durban. A short drive will take guests to the historical sites such as Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift and The Blood River Heritage site. Wakkerstroom is a popular attraction for bird lovers, and it's 80 km form New Castle. The beautiful Drakensberg Mountain Range is just over 100 km to Durban, and the popular Midlands Meander never gets old.

WoodStay Lodge is ideal for rest and relaxation, stay over, longer accommodation, socialising and braai. Uiltjie is a romantic unit with 1 bedroom with a double bed. KitKat is ideal for a family or a group of friends (2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom). Lonely Oak Cottage is perfect for a couple with 1 child or an adult.
