Troutwoods Cottage

Troutwoods Cottage is situated on a picturesque working farm located in the Mpumalanga trout triangle, just two and a half hours from Johannesburg, between the towns of Dullstroom, Machadodorp and Belfast.

We offer an exclusive pet friendly self-catering cottage, consisting of 2 comfortable bedrooms nestled in a 1500 sqm fenced in garden, surrounded by blue gum trees and grass fields with uninterrupted views as far as the eye can see – a perfect haven for anyone looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life!

The farm is home to a variety of fauna and flora and each season brings with it an array of amazing wild flowers to admire, spectacular birds to tick off your list and enough balmy days to explore every nook and cranny this amazing farm has to offer.

Come and enjoy lazy summer afternoons with your fur babies next to the dam and order a delicious picnic basket to snack on, one the dams is enclosed and therefore ideal for doggies to run off leash.

The crackling fire place and indoor braai facilities are perfect for those cold winter days and nights.

TroutWoods Cottage is set on a 700ha well maintained working farm located on the edge of the Mpumalanga escarpment with spectacular views to soak in.

Valkfontein farm is home to an assortment of farm animals as well as several species of game.

African fish eagles and a variety of water birds can be spotted at the dams and listen out for the call of the Blue Crane flying by.

Our dams are fed by a perennial, crystal clear natural spring that flows strongly all year round. There are 3 dams, stocked yearly, with rainbow and brown trout and guests are welcome to fish in the dams. We operate on a ‘catch and release’ basis.
