Overlooking the calm waters of Mavela Dam in the heart of the KZN Midlands of South Africa, Copperleigh Trout Cottage is a beautifully decorated modern self-catering home, perfect for a family or friends getaway to the countryside.
Mavela Dam is well known and loved by local fly fisherman, and is a popular spot to fish for trout. Limited access means that there are no crowds to spoil the experience, and you can relax and enjoy the quiet solitude whilst casting away all your cares.
Located on one of the Midlands Meander routes, you will be treated to amazing views of the wonderful upper Dargle countryside. Rolling green hills in summer, give way to golden fields in winter with spectacular sunsets for you to enjoy, while relaxing outside on the wooden deck.
This Establishment has been endorsed with the Superior status by the AA and is located 30kms from the town of Howick under the shadow of Inhlosane Mountain. At Copperleigh Trout Cottage, we strive to ensure that you only have the best experience whilst staying with us on our fully functioning sheep and cattle farm.
