In the heart of Dullstroom, where fly-fishing is king and the natural beauty of the landscape can be enjoyed all around, you will find the Muddlers Minnow Self-catering country cottage. This accommodation offering is perfect for families looking to get away from it all and enjoy nature.

 The cottage is situated a mere kilometre from the centre of Dullstroom and is close to local country shops, outdoor activities and restaurants. The cottage offers a sense of peace and relaxation while also showing off the beautiful surroundings of Dullstroom.

As a result, this establishment is very popular with fisherman and families who love to fish, which is not surprising given that the cottage is named after an artificial fly that is used for fly-fishing.

Adults can enjoy a complimentary carafe of Sherry upon arrival and the friendly staff will go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed.

What do people say about Muddlers Minnow

“EVERYTHING was awesome! Loved the personal touches (bottle of wine, sweets, cereal, wood for the fire). We had such a great time with our fur babies! As ek moeg word vir die lewe in die stad…See you again soon!” – Lydia

“The host had even turned on our electric blanket as we arrived late in the night. The room itself was comfortable, no shortage of warm blankets and a very nice bathroom with a massive shower. The small touches were very thoughtful – selection of fruit, coffee, tea, sugar, cereal, rusks and even a small jug of milk in the fridge. The host was friendly and very informative as we were first time visitors to the area. We only stayed one night as we were attending a wedding in the area but if we ever find ourselves in Dullstroom again, Muddlers Minnow will be our first choice for accommodation! Thank you so much to our fantastic host!” – Teneil

“We didn’t end up meeting the owners on our one night stay but all communication with them was a pleasure. The room was so quaint and lovely!

It really was such a lovely little place! Would highly recommend and come again – especially for the price!” – Laura

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
