This room is also decorated with a Persian carpet. The cottage has its own balcony, a perfect spot for admiring the flowers, views, and birdlife.

The Cottage also has a private bathroom fitted with a shower and comes with beautiful organic soap, shampoo, and conditioner handmade in Kenya. The guests have the run of the farm – in particular the ‘Party House’, with its soaring makuti-thatched ceiling, which houses our dining room and bar, drawing room, and library.
