Experience Tranquility at our Idyllic Mountain Getaway

Barton’s Trout and Nature Retreat is situated between two mountains in the beautiful Hekpoort area near Magaliesberg. It is the ideal self catering venue and fishing escape. The Trout Dam is surrounded by high cliffs and fed by a perennial mountain stream. The dams are well stocked and the method of angling is catch and release.

Barton’s Folly Manor House is a magnificently appointed house surrounded by huge thatch and verandahs overlooking the Hekpoort Spruit. It accommodates 8 and is entirely self catering with indoor and outdoor braai areas. It is ideal for a family getaway or fishing group. It is obviously not just for fishermen!

There is also Rose Cottage, a beautifully appointed self catering cottage with every convenience and is ideal for a romantic getaway for two.


Catch and release Trout in our dam fed by a mountain stream, or catch crabs in the river.  Take along a picnic and enjoy the day.

Game Viewing

We have a number of nyala and impala as well as a huge array of birds and other wildlife roaming our farm.


Hike up to our Historic British blockhouse, or take a leisurely stroll through the forest or along the river to the dam.
