My only suggestion would be to fill the dams and put trout in!! 😊 Honestly there is nothing I can say other than the place is absolutely fantastic! Wonderful weekend, peaceful, restful. The farm is magnificent. The daily house service really helped.

We will be back! Stuart Kroll

Bella Vista

Thanks so much for your email. We had a wonderful stay at Bella Vista thank you. I would have loved it if the bathrooms were heated or had a heated towel rail perhaps. The one thing that everyone absolutely loved were the beds!! I actually meant to lift the sheets and look at the make of the mattress and totally forgot. I would sooooo appreciate it if you could find out the make of those mattresses 😊. Thanks so much again!

Elands Valley

Good Morning. I would like to thank you and the most wonderful staff I have ever met. We all very teary when we left yesterday. Lizzy is the most awesome person, and her smiling team created a warm and accommodating feeling. I would not change a thing, maybe just covers for the couches that are broken. You will definitely see us again soon.

Kind regards, Lyndi Thomas


I have stayed at Dabchick many, many times (since 2010 If I'm not mistaken), and just love it. I can't think of anything that would make it better. Keeping the costs so affordable is all I would hope for, it is in my opinion the greatest little hidden gem in Dullstroom. A beautiful little cottage on the top of a hill overlooking a beautiful valley, with 3 well managed, easily accessible dams, with great fishing, what could I possibly ask you to improve? Thank you. Side note: I did leave a day early, but only because something came up that I had to attend to in Joburg.

Kind regards, Ross Solomons

Field & Stream

We enjoyed our stay in the quiet and calm and beautiful environment. The accommodation was clean and ready upon our arrival. We even managed to catch and release a beautiful trout. We are going back next year.

Apple Blossom

We as a group enjoyed our stay at Apple Blossom. The stoep overlooking the fishing dam as well as expanse of lawn and braai area are a bonus With the bad weather over the week-end, the fireplace was a blessing, would have been nice though to have had a T.V. for a bit of entertainment Otherwise we had all we needed

Regards , Caroline & Company

Kind regards, Janet Fourie
