The space
This is one of two semi-detached cottages in a large garden below the main house and overlooking the river which runs under the property. It comprises an integrated lounge/dining/kitchen area, two double bedrooms and a separate bathroom. The double bedrooms have ample hanging space and storage. The kitchen has a sink, gas cooker, microwave, fridge, kettle, coffee maker and toaster. Hair dryer and iron are available on request. We do not put them in the cottage as the back up power system cannot support them in times of power outages.

Guest access
Guest may enjoy the garden. However we have 4 dogs, a cat and chickens who also freely enjoy the garden

I am a retired company director who has lived in Africa off and on for over 40 years. I have visited over 50 countries worldwide a number of which were visited initially to play rugby. I still enjoy travelling but mainly to visit friends or to play golf. My favourite golfing destination is Thailand. Love the people, love the food.
