House Rules

Fishing: Fly fishing only, strictly catch and release.
You are welcome to keep one trout per person per stay. Additional charged at R150per kg. Please enquire for smoked trout/pate availability.

ROD HIRE: Fly rods available @ R150 per day.
Flies available @ R15 each.
Should rented equipment sustain any damage, R1500 replacement fee is applicable, and damaged equipment becomes yours.

FIREWOOD: 2 Sacks of firewood included. Additional firewood available @ R100 per sack. Please order additional wood with the housekeeper and leave cash for it in the envelope inside the guest book.

Cell Signal: The cell signal is generally bad along the river. For good signal drive back up the steep hill just after Bag End Cottage, and park at the top by the tall blue gum trees.

WI-FI: Wi-Fi is routed via an elaborate network of wireless links through the valley to your cottage, and is dependent on the local Vodacom tower function. This infrastructure unfortunately makes it costly to deliver, and can be purchased (R100 per Gig) upon login by credit card. Not yet available to Elvinbrook and Bucklebury cottages.
Some guests have had reasonable success with personal mi-fi / hotspot devices, and you’re most welcome to bring them along, but the signal strength in the valley fluctuates.

- No pets are permitted.
- No smoking inside the cottages.
