Katrinasrust Trout Farm has been in the Brewer family for over 70 years, originally belonging to Tim Brewer's grandfather, Vernon. In 1990, Tim, who had previously been working in exploration geology, returned to Katrinasrust with his wife, Lesley-Anne, and their three children to help his father, Eric, run the trout business. Up until recently the farm produced in excess of 50 tonnes of fish per annum and largely dealt in live deliveries of trout to the local Machadodorp area and Mpumalanga province. More recently, however, the emphasis has gone over to recreation and Tim and Lesley-Anne have been working on developing the property as a haven for people wanting to escape to the country for some peace and quiet. Taking on this new direction for the farm is their daughter, Alice, and her husband, Graeme, who moved back to Katrinasrust at the end of 2018. Their vision for Katrinasrust is to create a space that enchants guests. To create a home away from home for them to relax and spend quality time with family and friends while exploring the natural beauty around them.
There is a communal Wifi area between the cottages that all guests are welcome to use.
All cottages are serviced daily, with each cottage having its own housekeeper.
The two larger cottages on Katrinasrust are situated in their own private fenced gardens.
