We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Troutways Private Retreat. Although we didn't fish, the dams look well kept and we did see some large fish near the water surface. We went for long walks with our dogs, the grounds are beautiful with surrounding mountains. The farm animals are all such characters and the farm feels very authentic with them around. There are geese and pigs that walk around but all seem to mind their own business. We felt honoured to have the company of the farm dogs Buster and Jessica who happily accompanied us on our walks but always keeping a following distance as though they are considerate and making sure they don't disturb. Little Moses the staffie is such a bundle of love and also happy to pass on cuddles should you require any. We had excellent service from all the staff who were friendly and always offering to help. Micky the farm manager is very hospitable and hard working, she goes out of her way to make the guests feel welcome, nothing is too much trouble for her.
Thank you Troutways, we look forward to visiting again. Kind regards, Bronwyn, Ian, Myiya and Rocky.

Beautiful beautiful beautiful area. Biking paradise and really an area full of potential. Still one of those little forgotten places where you can see yesterday's memories clearly.
Accommodation was great,the house have everything you will ever need for such a breakaway.

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend break at Troutways! The weather was excellent, the fishing was good (31 fish between the three of us) and the farm animals were delightful. Jan was also always in attendance and looked after us like a grandpa.
I’m pretty sure we’ll be visiting again sometime.

Where can you possibly go to get away from the madness of Jo'burg and not encounter anyone else for two whole days?
It was so peaceful and relaxing! I can't remember the last time that had such a great weekend away!

Good mattresses and bed linen. Lovely setting. Enjoyed it as a family weekend where we could enjoy one another's company without interference. Helpful staff. Housekeeping a bonus!
