Budget Getaways Review
Field and Stream sits along a rough dirt road (high clearance vehicle recommended), 9km from Dullstroom.
Besides open nature, there's plenty on offer here: privacy, peace and quiet, gorgeous views, fly-fishing in several dams and the Witpoort River itself, and a total of five comfortable self-catering units.
If fishing is your main reason for being here, you're in good company, because owner Greg Williams is passionate about fly-fishing; in fact he will be a tad offended if you don't manage to hook a fish during your visit.
When not tying Wooly Buggers and untangling your line from the nearest willow, there are three lovely waterfalls nearby with picnic and swimming areas, as well as opportunity for a spot of clay-pigeon shooting near the entrance to the farm.
Your bed for the weekend comes in a choice of five cottages, most of them built of rugged stone: A pair of elegant six- and eight-sleeper units overlooking a dam; a more upmarket 10-sleeper lodge with great outlook; a cottage suited to couples, and a six-sleeper farmstead. In total, you're looking at 30 beds - bachelor's here we come!
The cottages are serviced, come with linen and towels, free views, and fireplaces for those biting winters. The furnishings are simple, yet comfortable - and befitting this type of escape.
Great news is that there's no cell reception, plus Field and Stream is pet-friendly on request, so you can really make a full family expedition of it.
Looking at the guest feedback, it bodes well for a happy stay. From Tripadvisor: "Wonderful accommodation." "What a lovely place." "Almost excellent."
Definitely among Dullstroom's better self-catering options.
"We had a lovely wintery weekend fly fishing and relaxing at Field and Stream. We stayed in Eagle Crest and it was great. The house was warm and cozy and has all the amenities we could need. The owner, Greg Williams, is clearly a passionate fisherman - he gave us lots of tips and advice for the fishing outings. The farm manager is also friendly, helpful and pro-active. The only potential issue is the road leading up to the farm and on the farm itself. Thankfully we drive a Landy, a car would have a spot of trouble. But Greg did warn us ahead of time that we need high clearance to get to the houses so it was all good."

"We had a superb weekend of absolute tranquility - the setting was completely relaxing - other than seeing other people fishing we felt like we were the only people there. The accommodation was comfortable and really had everything we needed - plenty of wood and the ten top- up bags were very reasonable. The kids could get out and fish and run around and do what they wanted in complete safety. We will definitely return."

"Our stay at Field and Stream was a great experience. We were a large group and stayed in The Nest, The Cormorant and the Farmstead - each cottage was fully kitted and the facilities were perfect. Taking a walk or bike ride around the farm to see the beautiful views is a must! The road however is a bit precarious, so I would recommend only those with 4 x 4's attempt it!"

"For a second time we stayed at 'Field & Stream' recently. We love the tranquility of the farm, beautiful scenery and the great walks we enjoyed every day. Especially to the waterfall. You don't have to be fly fisher people to enjoy F&S. The accommodation is well kitted out. Beds are good. One thing we missed, was comfortable seating outside to enjoy the views in or read. So bring your own camping chairs!"
