Wonderlike plek, sou graag paar dae wou bly.

Baie vriendelike ontvangs. Verskriklike mooi omgewing en uitstaande verblyf. Spyt ons het net 1 nag gebly. Alles wat mens nodig het is daar om rustig te ontspan.

Convenient location, comfortable stay but not all as advertised.

Well equipped comfortable cottage but the rest of the advertised facilities were disappointing. No game to be seen and inaccessible river, except a small entrance at the weir.

Highlander Trout Lodge 's response

The access to the river is through a gate for security reasons. Also, remember next time to enquire about directions if you want to go for a walk on the farm to spot some game. Thank you for taking the time to respond.

Sal vir seker weer gaan draai.

Vriendelikste staf op aarde, eenheid is goed toegerus vir 'n lekker wegbreek, was maar net warm in die nag toe Eskom die krag afsit, maar sal baie lekker wees in die winter. Let wel, slegs vlieghengel word toegelaat, so los maar jou swartbaar gerei by die huis.

Just what the doctor ordered.

We were met by 2 wonderful staff who showed us to the house and made sure we were comfortable. And that we were, including the bed. The whole house was well equipped and quite luxurious and very private. The walks around the farm were great as well as the scenery. 2 nights were just too short but were wonderful. We'll be back!

We had an amazing time. The staff were friendly and helpful and owners very accommodating.

Some of the kitchen appliances need servicing - such as gas regulator on stove and oven, the dustbin drawer was broken and the kitchen tap was loose. Also there was no plug in the basin in the braai area. But otherwise it was the most wonderful stay in a beautiful setting. It was perfect for us, we would have loved to stay longer.

Awesome place - we truly rested.

The farm is beautiful, the trout dams are plenty. We had a lot of bites, however we are a bit rusted - it's been a while since we did any trout fishing. We will be back in winter. We stayed in the Trout Lodge, absolutely lovely and perfect. A combination of bush, mountains and trout dams. Love the poplar trees. Love the place.

Beautiful, romantic weekend.

My partner and I stayed at Highlander for our anniversary and couldn't have asked for a more perfect location! The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and our unit was picture-perfect (Farm Cottage). The units are all very well spaced apart, so that you don't see or hear anyone and you have total seclusion in a beautiful setting in nature. We picnicked at the picturesque dam and had a lovely braai on the built-in braai at the unit, which was well stocked with good firewood. The cottage was absolutely beautiful and extremely well-appointed. Beds are super comfy too! 10/10 would recommend Highlander to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway not too far out of town. It is also ideally situated near loads of great attractions like hiking and gin tasting!

Baie rustige omgewing, Chalet is mooi en goed ingerig. Swembad was baie vuil, kon glad nie swem nie.

Die eenheid was 'n grasdak en daar was baie spinnekoppe teen die kappe van die dak. Die blindings was stukkend, so kon van hulle nie oop- en toemaak nie. Die buitelig by die braai-area is baie swak, kon nie sien met die lig nie. Die damme is mooi, maar baie beperk as gevolg van riete wat aan kante groei.

Very peaceful environment, Chalet is beautiful and well furnished. Pool was very dirty, couldn't swim at all.

The unit was a thatched roof and there were many spiders on the rafters of the roof. The blinds were broken, so some of them could not open and close. The outside light at the braai area is very poor, could not see with the light. The ponds are beautiful but very limited due to reeds growing on the sides.

Lekker wegebreekplek vir 'n naweek vir 'n klein gesin of vriende. Baie netjies. Lekker boma en braai-area. Lekker kaggel in die hoofslaapkamer. Die kombuis is ook baie oulik met 'n gasstoof. Ek was net een aand daar omdat ek 'n troue bygewoon het, maar ek sal eintlik graag weer wil gaan. Dis baie lekker stil en kan 'n goeie wegbreek wees.

Really amazing place if you just want to get away somewhere. Not too far from home. I'm in JHB.

I'm looking forward to going back, even though I'm no fisherman. Just the peacefulness of being out in the bush without actually being in a forest is great. Nice little walks around the place with a hidden pool to cure the heat. Really enjoyed my time there.

Die bes bewaarde geheim in Harties-omgewing.

Ons verblyf by Highlander Trout Lodge was die hoogtepunt in 'n naweek van hoogtepunte. Ek het vooraf met Sandra gepraat om te hoor watter van die vier eenhede vir ons die geskikste sou wees, en haar aanbeveling was perfek! Hartbeeshuis bied luukse akkommodasie, maar baie goeie waarde vir geld. Die afwerkings en geriewe binne is uit die boonste rakke, en die kombuis is baie goed toegerus. Daar was ook oorgenoeg hout vir die braai buite en die houtstofie binne. Dit is weggesteek tussen die bome, maar net 'n klipgooi van die swembad af. Dit was heerlik om Sondagoggend wakker te word met voëls wat sing in die bome, en ons het die meeste etes buite op die gesellige stoep geniet. Die plaas self is 'n lushof. Daar is pragtige paadjies om te verken en die damme en die baie lopende water skep 'n fantastiese atmosfeer. Die apies speel rond in die bome en ons het selfs 'n sebra gesien. Ek het 'n spesiale versoek gehad vir die akkommodasie se voorbereiding, en Sandra het uit haar pad gegaan om daaraan te voldoen. Die twee personeellede wat ons Saterdagmiddag verwelkom het, het ook 'n baie goeie indruk geskep. Al waaroor ons spyt is, is dat ons nie langer kon bly nie. Ons sal binne 'n oogwink weer hier bespreek.

The best kept secret in the Harties area.

Our stay at Highlander Trout Lodge was the highlight of a weekend of highlights. I spoke with Sandra beforehand to find out which of the four units would be the most suitable for us, and her recommendation was perfect! Hartbeeshuis offers luxury accommodation but very good value for money. The finishes and amenities inside are top notch, and the kitchen is very well equipped. There was also more than enough wood for the braai outside and the wood stove inside. It is hidden among the trees, but just a stone's throw from the pool. It was lovely to wake up on Sunday morning to birds singing in the trees, and we enjoyed most meals outside on the cozy porch. The farm itself is a loop court. There are beautiful paths to explore and the ponds and lots of running water create a fantastic atmosphere. The monkeys play around in the trees and we even saw a zebra. I had a special request for the accommodation's preparation, and Sandra went out of her way to accommodate it. The two members of staff who welcomed us on Saturday afternoon also made a very good impression. All we regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We will discuss here again in a moment.

Rustige plaasatmosfeer, privaat en netjies

Goed ontvang deur werker. Sy het uit haar pad gegaan om alles mooi te wys en ons welkom te laat voel. Die Covid-protokol is tot op die letter toegepas. Baie netjies en skoon binne, volledig toegerus. Lekker ekstras soos koffie en tee, warm handoekreëlings, verwarmer beskikbaar. Braaier se rooster het 'n gat in gehad, weet nie of die eienaar daarvan bewus is nie. Verder was alles 100% en ons sal graag weer in die somer wil kom.

Other than that, everything was 100% and we would love to come again in the summer.

Lekker wegbreek naby Johannesburg

Highlander Trout Lodge is 'n kommersiële forelplaas, met uitstekende geriewe, en 'n baie goeie wegbreek wat so bietjie van alles het. Bosveld, foreldamme en dan is daar baie meer wat jy op die plaas kan doen. Die eenheid is baie goed uitgelê en het alle geriewe wat jy nodig het. Sal dit hoogs aanbeveel.

Nice getaway near Johannesburg

Highlander Trout Lodge is a commercial trout farm, with excellent facilities, and a very good getaway that has a little bit of everything. Woodland, trout ponds and then there is much more that you can do on the farm. The unit is very well laid out and has all the amenities you need. Would highly recommend it.

A five-star experience. We arrived late but were still awaited. Our chalet was heated and curtains drawn and lights switched on. Friendly, courteous personnel.

A beautiful working farm with five-star facilities, well-trained staff, and beautiful surroundings. Well-furnished and equipped and thinking of everything - even a picnic basket and blanket. I will visit again.

Pragtige omgewing, still, rus vir jou siel.

Hou van die uitleg van die huis, die boma wat omring is met bome. Spinnekoppe bietjie te veel, maar deel van die bosomgewing. Trout-dam omgewing ook mooi skoon gesny. Lekker stil. Dankie vir die vriendelike omgee en diens.

Baie mooi plaas.

Lekker gebly. Daar was wel perdebyneste op die stoep wat dag kuier daar moeilik gemaak het. Dit kan wel maklik uitgesorteer word. Visvang was nie maklik met forelhengelstok maar baie vis te sien. Baie mooi visdamme. Anders was dit 'n lekker kuier.

Highlander Trout Lodge 's response

Omdat ons in ‘n landelike area is, kom ons water uit ‘n boorgat. Die bruinerige water was veroorsaak deur ‘n kragonderbreking. As jy die kraan net ‘n rukkie laat loop, is die water weer helder.
Onthou om ons asb dadelik in kennis te stel as jy enige probleem ondervind, sodat ons dit kan regstel. Ons kontaknommers is in die eenheid of vra vir die staflid wat na jou omsien. Wonderlik, julle het ‘n geelvis gevang! Die forelle neem makliker die vlieg in die winter as dit koeler is. Geniet julle nuwe baba en dankie vir die terugvoer!

Die verblyf is gerieflik en in pragtige natuur.

Die verblyf was gerieflik en skoon, maar aangesien dit as 'n forelplaas bemark word, dink ek voornemende gaste behoort vroegtydig, reeds in die advertensie, ingelig te word dat die damme slegs van April tot Oktober met vis aangevul word en dat somermaande nie geskik is vir forelvang nie.

This review is being shown in its original language.
Translate to English.

The accommodation is comfortable and in beautiful nature.

The accommodation was comfortable and clean, but as it is marketed as a trout farm, I think prospective guests should be informed in good time, already in the advertisement, that the dams are only stocked with fish from April to October and that summer months are not suitable for trout-fishing.

Highlander Trout Lodge 's response

Ons broei self ons eie forelle uit en vul die voorraad in die damme aan soos benodig gedurende die jaar. Ons is nie gebonde aan sekere tye van die jaar nie.

Forelvangs is gunstiger gedurende wintermaande, maar jy kan steeds suksesvol wees in die somer as jy ‘n lyn gebruik wat sink of eksperimenteer met verskillende vliegies. Forel is geneig om na die bodem van die dam te beweeg in die somer.

Geelvis kom natuurlik voor in ons riviersisteem en damme en jy kan hulle ook met die vlieg vang gedurende die somermaande. Onthou gerus om dit te probeer volgende keer.

Dankie vir die terugvoer

A very pleasant stay.

We enjoyed the outdoors, the relaxing atmosphere, the distance from home, the peace and quiet. A very large home and a restful stay in the Kingfisher unit. Perhaps a bigger fridge is necessary if catering for 6. I thoroughly enjoyed myself! And when the water runs into the bath, it is in the shape of a heart.

Sonder om ver te ry, kon ons 'n pragtige, rustige omgewing ervaar waar ons heerlik kon ontspan.

Besonder mooi omgewing. Ons kon soveel foto's neem wat ons kan gebruik vir skilderwerk - dis werklik 'n skilderagtige omgewing. Die akkommodasie is ruim, gemaklik, met 'n outydse sjarme, maar terselfdertyd baie gerieflik met alles wat jou verblyf plesierig maak. Die honde het kom kuier, maar was glad nie lastig nie. Ek het hulle gemis nadat ons weg is. Ons sal weer wil gaan en vriende saamneem - daar is soveel ruimte. Ons is nie hengelaars nie, maar het die natuurskoon baie geniet.

The dogs came to visit, but were not troublesome at all. I missed them after we left. We would love to go again and bring friends - there is so much space.

Vanaf aankoms is ons vriendelik ontvang en gehelp met die afpak. Die diensdames ken hulle werk, asook die slaapplek wat jy gaan gebruik om dit vir jou maklik te maak om in te pas en van die begin af te ontspan. Die verblyf-eenheid is goed gemeubileer en het uitstekende toerusting. Jy kan pak vir die dag en uitgaan op ekskursies en as jy terugkom is alles weer skoon en op hul plek. Alles werk net. Ons plekkie in die bos is heerlik en geen ander vakansiegangers in onmiddellike sig nie, wat dit baie ontspanne maak. Ek kan Highlander Trout Lodge vir enige iemand aanbeveel vir 'n wonderlike sentraal geleë wegbreek.

All the dams are overgrown.

Unfortunately Highlander Lodge is not a destination for fly fishing (the photos on the website are obviously very outdated). We were dismayed to find on arrival that all the dams were overgrown. We were informed that this was for the bird life? Why advertise fly fishing then? We only found one small spot at the dam by the Farmhouse (Which we moved to after booking Trout House). The cottages are neat and tidy, but in need of upgrading. What a let down after looking forward to this holiday and as a treat for our son who had received his first fly rod for Christmas. The owner offered a refund after we complained (Please note we did advise on the booking form that there were 3 guests fishing) but we made the best of it as we only had this opportunity for a breakaway. The surroundings were however beautiful and peaceful.

Highlander Trout Lodge 's response

Dear Tania,

Thank you for airing your view. We value your opinion and will always investigate the validity of every comment made.

We have a wide variety of guests staying at the Highlander. Apart from fly fishing, the Highlander is also about the outdoors, bird watching (sections of embankment will always stay untouched for nesting and shelter), taking walks, or just soaking up the tranquillity and beauty.

We do keep our profile current as far as possible. The last picture uploaded was in December and we have just posted a picture of the yellow fish that occurs naturally in our dams and river system. We are so sorry that you did not hook one of those during your stay.

Regards,
Highlander Trout Lodge

Baie netjies en ruim in 'n pragtige en goed-versorgde omgewing.

Ons het in Kingfisher oorgebly. Ons is 'n gesin met volwasse kinders en wou 'n spesiale aand hê. Dit was hiper-netjies en heerlik ruim, met goeie kwaliteit binneversiering. Die omgewing is pragtig en baie goed versorg, met lekker stapplek. Ons het nie die aand self gebraai nie, maar ek het gesien daar was hout neergesit. Beslis aan te beveel.

Die rustigheid van die huise en die damme was net wat my siel nodig gehad het.

'n Mens kan sien dat die damme en ander areas op 'n stadium 'n bietjie nie aandag gekry het nie, maar nou is daar mense wat vir die plek lief is en daarvan hou dat gaste kom om die tydjie te geniet. Ons was nou nie baie suksesvol met die visvang nie, maar darem twee klein forelle kon kry, 'n geelvis en 'n paar kurpers, maar ons was daar om weg te breek in vrede en dit kon ons doen daar. Sal beslis in die winter wil teruggaan om daai kaggel in die kamer te toets. Sou lekker gewees het as hulle forel te koop aangebied het vir gaste, want so 'n vars forel oor die kole sou darem goed afgegaan het.

The tranquility of the houses and the ponds was just what my soul needed.

One can see that the ponds and other areas were a bit neglected at one point, but now there are people who love the place and like guests to come and enjoy the time. We were not very successful with the fishing, but at least we managed to get two small trout, a yellowfish and a few carp, but we were there to break away in peace and we could do that there. Will definitely want to go back in the winter to test that fireplace in the room. It would have been nice if they offered trout for sale to guests, because such a fresh trout over the coals would have gone down well.

Die instandhouding van die oewers is 'n deurlopende proses. Omdat ons gaste het met uiteenlopende belangstellings, probeer ons 'n balans te behou tussen voëllewe en vlieghengel. Daar sal dus altyd areas wees waar die oewers ongesny gelos word om skuiling en broei areas vir die voëls te verskaf. Skakel ons gerus indien jy wil forel koop volgende keer.

Heerlik rustig. Pragtige natuurskoon. Netjiese wooneenhede ver van mekaar af.

Netjiese gemaklike huis. Heerlik rustig en voel of jy heeltemal afgesonder en alleen is. Pragtige natuurskoon en rustige atmosfeer. Baie voëllewe rondom die damme. Lekker visvang alhoewel ons nie die beste tyd daar was nie, geen forelle nie maar wel vlei en kanariekurpers. Vang en vrylaat is ons voorkeur so dit het ons gepas. Alles wat mens benodig om net heerlik te kan rus en wegbreek van die gejaag, en dis so lekker naby aand die stad. Puik gewees.

Very tranquil. Beautiful scenery. Neat units far from each other.

Neat and comfortable house. Very tranquil and it feels like you are isolated and alone. Beautiful scenery and tranquil environment. A lot of birds around the dams. Enjoyed fishing even though we weren't there during the best time, no trout but lake and canary kurper. Catch and release is our priority so it suited us. It is everything that you need to rest and break away from the rush and it is so close to the city. It was very good!

Pragtige, goedbestuurde wegbreekplek gerieflik naby die stad.

Die personeel is hartlik en goed opgelei. Dit is 'n pragtige plek! Ek beplan reeds om weer soontoe te gaan. Daar's nog baie foto's wat wag om geneem te word.

Pragtige klein juweeltjie, net 'n klipgooi van Gauteng. Heerlike, rustige wegbreek vir besige Gautengers.

'n Lekker rustige atmosfeer om vir 'n naweek weg te breek.

'n Rustige, netjiese en veilige omgewing waar jy kan ontspan. Die huis is goed ingerig en baie privaat. Daar is egter opknapping nodig. Sal dit beslis aanbeveel as jy net vir 'n paar dae wil gaan rus. Het spesifiek daar bespreek om te gaan vlieghengel. Dit was egter 'n groot teleurstelling. Die riete maak die damme ontoeganklik. Kon slegs in een dam hengel maar ook beperk - het geen forel opgelewer nie. Kon ook nie in die rivier hengel nie om dieselfde rede.

A nice peaceful atmosphere to break away for a weekend.

A quiet, tidy and safe environment where you can relax. The house is well appointed and very private. However, renovation is needed. Would definitely recommend if you just want to get away for a few days. Booked there specifically to go fly fishing. However, it was a huge disappointment. The reeds make the ponds inaccessible. Was only able to fish one pond but also limited - did not produce any trout. Couldn't fish in the river either for the same reason.

Beautiful location, excellent accommodation, peacefull and quite, perfect escape.

We loved this house next to the trout hatchery and dam. The perfect place for a quick getaway to complete privacy and beautifull surroundings. We will surely return for a longer stay during the winter. Beautiful gardens and helpfull staff. The dogs were an absolute treat. Home away from home.

Ontspannend en baie mooi.

Die plaashuisie wat ons was is smaakvol en baie aangenaam met 'n lekker braai-area. Nie te veel mense nie, so jy het jou privaatheid dit is lekker stil met plaasdiere in die agtergrond. Lekker hengel-area. Sal beslis terugkeer.

The farmhouse we stayed in is tasteful and very pleasant with a nice braai area. Not too many people, so you have your privacy, it's nice and quiet with farm animals in the background. Nice fishing area. Will definitely return.

Baie netjies en skoon, gasvry, rustig en romanties.

Ontvangs was baie professioneel. Personeel baie hulpvaardig en goed opgelei. Die verblyf is baie netjies en skoon. Hulle het aan al die klein goedjies gedink: by al die braai-areas is klaar netjies hout gesit. Die baie water gee 'n rustige atmosfeer, die plaas is pragtig geleë en netjies versorg. Daar is baie romantiese plekkies om piekniek te hou. Ons kon lekker laat slaap baie. Stil en rustig op die plaas.

Very neat and clean, hospitable, peaceful and romantic.

Reception was very professional. Staff very helpful and well trained. The accommodation is very neat and clean. They have thought of all the little things: all the braai areas have already been neatly laid with wood. The abundance of water gives a peaceful atmosphere, the farm is beautifully situated and neatly maintained. There are many romantic places to have a picnic. We were able to sleep a lot. Quiet and peaceful on the farm.

Skoon, modern en rustig.

'n Wonderlike belewenis. Ek en my ma het haar 93ste verjaarsdag in die 'Farmhouse' gevier en toe ons terugkom van middagete, staan daar 2 cupcakes met kersies op en 'n persoonlike verjaarsdagkaartjie vir haar! Uitstekende gasvryheid.
