Thank you Ashley and family for the amazing time spent at your cottage. It is such a hidden gem. Everything is so well thought out and the cottage really is a home away from home (but with much better views :D ).

My only complaint is that our stay was too short. Thank you once again, we can't wait to come back soon.

Dear Crookes Family

Thank you for this beautiful cottage and your hospitality. It is the perfect getaway. Don't change anything. The welcome basket, the daily helper, the wood by the fireplace, sharing with us the experience of feeding the sheep are all the special thoughtful things that make this cottage a five-star gem in our eyes. Kareena especially appreciated holding the little baby lambs, that was the highlight of our stay. Thank you, thank you.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. The kids enjoyed themselves so much. Even though they had WiFi, they enjoyed the board games. The cottage is beautiful and so cozy, and the garden is so pretty. Looking forward to our next visit.

This was our second visit to the cottage and our stay was even better than the previous one! Thank you Ashley and family for your warm and gracious hospitality! We look forward to our next visit, and if it were up to Noa', it would be very soon :D

What a pleasure it was to stay in. Fully equipped with everything ; from baking utensils to games, books and DVD's. Too awesome! Will definitely be back. The fireplace only made it extra cozy for these cold nights. 100 stars from us.

Thank you for always going the extra mile. We love staying in your beautifully-appointed cottage - so clean and welcoming. Trout-fishing was spot-on again : everyone caught, so happy guys. Always hate leaving. You know we'll be back to this little corner of KZN paradise.

Celebrating our 29th Wedding Anniversary. This has become a tradition started by my husband and we have not missed one year yet!
We have come to know the Midlands very well, and I must say this years choice at Copperleigh Trout Cottage has exceeded our expectations.
Thank you Ashley for a perfect weekend. The accommodation is faultless, you have thought of everything 10/10. What a beautiful farm you have!

Superb. 5 out of 5

What an amazingly beautiful place to have introduced our 19 month old grandson to, country life & nature. He took to the farm like a pro.
Thank you to our host Ashley for being so attentive & accommodating - as a host you get 10/10 for everything!
We will definitely be returning.

Superb. 5 out of 5
