About Copperleigh Trout Cottage

Situated on a working sheep and cattle farm in Dargle, Copperleigh Trout Cottage is a beautifully decorated modern self-catering holiday cottage or home, overlooking the calm waters of Mavela Dam. The dam is stocked with trout by the NFFC (Natal Fly Fishing Club) on an annual basis and is a fly fisherman's delight.

Self Catering Accommodation

The cottage has 3 bedrooms upstairs. Two bedrooms have Queen size beds and feature ceiling fans, electric blankets and hair dryers. The loft room has a bunk bed and double sleeper couch suitable for 4 children sharing. The two bathrooms each have a shower and toilet.

There is an open plan lounge, modern fully equipped self catering kitchen and a dining room on the ground floor, along with a double electric garage and guest toilet. The lounge is equipped with a Flatscreen TV and includes DSTV Premium and a DVD player with a large movie selection. Complimentary wifi is also included.

There is a large, wood burning fireplace for use on chilly evenings. One large complimentary bundle of firewood is included each morning, should you require more, then bundles of firewood can be purchased from management. The lounge opens onto the verandah which is equipped with a Weber braai.

Additional Facilities

A first aid kit, safety card and fire extinguisher are available and we have a generator to provide electricity in the event that the power goes out.

Fishing & Other Activities

Guests have free access to Mavela Dam from the garden. Please remember to bring your own fly fishing rods and equipment to fish for trout. There is a small stream running along the edge of the garden into the dam.

There are a couple of short walks you can take on the farm. The sheep can be seen going out to pasture at 07h30 and returning at 15h30. There are also some other small livestock which includes chickens for the kids to see.

Small boats to go paddling out on the dam with (please bring own life jackets) and some tubes for kids to swim in the dam with.

Thank you for sharing this little bit of heaven with us. Peaceful & rejuvenating. Spotless & perfect. Well equipped with a lot of thought going into it. We had a wonderful stay. See you again soon. Thank you for your hospitality. P.S. Loved the birds & all the little critters too. Saw a tree frog.
