On the Mpumalanga Highveld bordering Kwa Zulu Natal, nestled between mountains and wetlands, lies Forellenhof Guest Farm.

Forellenhof has a four star grading and is one of those unique accommodation establishments that has that farm feel, yet it brings out the beauty of the country and the spender of its natural gifts. The ambiance that has been created by the owners offers you rest and tranquility in luxury romantic accommodation in two self-catering cottages and a guesthouse. Forellenhof sleeps a maximum of 16 guests.

The Guest Farm is ideally situated for a stopover from- and to Kwa-Zulu Natal and the Kruger National Park and Swaziland. It is a mere 3 hour drive from Pretoria and Johannesburg.

  • "Lovely cottage and views"

    12 July 2016

    "We stayed for 3 nights at the 2 bedroom Pretty Pig cottage. Despite the cold winter nights we werekept warm by the electric blankets and firestove. The cottage is situated next to a small dam and I can just imagine how gorgeous it must be in summer. Even in winter we saw many birds from our patio. The owners were courteous and friendly. The kids loved seeing chickens, sheep, cattle and horses. We loved exploring the small town which is close by.<div>Beware of roadworks on the Standerton road from Johannesburg which added an hour to our journey. Rather take the N17 to Bethal and then Volksrust - or check with the owners.</div>"

    "Ronelle and Johann were the most amazing hosts, willing to share their beautiful place and their beautiful birds and animals. We had the most amazing time. The cottage was so well equipped and every need was catered for. The view was stunning and we just had the best of times. I totally recommend this place."

  • "A breath of fresh air"

    23 January 2015

    "Braai on the stoop with your favourite tipple, look out over rolling farmland interspersed with small dams and sheep, horses and cattle grazing nearby, surrounded in the distance by hills and mountains, with the wind the only sound in the tall trees. With all the comfort of a well laid out and equipped fully functional cottage that is home for such a short the only regret is having to leave."

  • "Forellenhof stay."

    04 January 2014

    "Our cottage at Forellenhof was very well appointed with good quality linen on the beds and everything you could need in the kitchen. Hosts Johan and Ronelle were very attentive and helpful and on hand. Ronelle made us a very nice supper. It's also well situated to visit all the birding spots in the vicinity. Would certainly recommend."

  • "Amazing hosts"

    15 July 2013

    "Having travelled the world, I have never come across such amazing hosts as Johan and Ronelle.The thought that goes into making the difference in a holiday, comes naturally to them. I arrived as one only can from the madness of JHB and left with a calmness I have not felt for years.Every morning I was delighted by the beautiful sunrises and enamoured with the little town of Wakkerstroom which is steeped in history. The fact that we could take our dogs was a definite bonus.My 10 year old son claims to have had the best holiday of his life. I have with out a doubt left a little of my heart behind and cant wait to return in the summer."

Beautiful area, stunning view, peace and quiet farm atmosphere, great hosts who made the stay so relaxed and comfortable, beautiful unit etc etc... This is the place where I see myself retiring!!! Absolutely worth a visit! Thanks Johan and Ronel for sharing."

  • "A spot of heaven"

    04 April 2013

    "What a beautiful little piece of heaven. We only stayed a night much to our disappointment as we were in the midst of a long travel and needed a stop over for the night. The owners, Johan and Ronelle went out of their way to make our stay comfortable, thanks! Amazing touches that make the place magical- a smiling face on a willow tree, a swinging bench by the vlei...true hits with our little children. We would definately recommend staying there...and longer than one night if you can."

  • "Forellenhof"

    25 March 2013

    "If peace, quiet and tranquility in comfort is what you are after, Forellenhof is your place to go. No 'forelle' as yet, but plans are in the offing to introduce them to the property. Lovely views from the stoep and although Wakkerstroom is only down the mountain, one can't see it, which adds to the peace."
