What a magical place! The scenery reminds you of Southern Italy or France in summer time. Just loved the Victorian bathtub and fire place. Make sure to take a walk around the Coffee Estate with a High Tea waiting for you on your return.

An old fashioned luxury estate now open for us lucky enough to be able to arrive and stay! Just a lovely site, staff and everything. If I am lost, look here, but please don't tell anyone!
