Escape the bustle of daily life and reconnect with the magic of nature at Trout Cottage. With three beautifully-styled bedrooms, kitchen and dining area and cosy living room, the cottage is an ideal hideout for small groups and families.  

Located in a private area of the farm, surrounded by fragrant fruit orchards and rows of pretty vines, the stunning Simonsberg Mountains are your closest neighbour. Step out the front door for walking and trail running on the slopes and mountain biking on Sugarbowl Mountain. Otherwise, enjoy a spot of R&R, Boschendal-style, and relax under the magnificent oaks surrounding the adjacent Rhodes Dam, or take a dip in the clear water.  

Great for families and active groups of friends. Sleeps 4 people adults and 2 kids. Dog friendly.  

Please note that guests staying at Trout Cottage must have their own transport as the cottage is 2km from the reception and historical Werf area.
