    Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We love our access road and of course the little bit of heaven at the end of it.

    Reviewed 13 April 2016

    The track keeps it private; the atmosphere keeps it close; the dogs keep it cosy and secure; the room and food keep it homely and value+; the owner's knowledge and energy keeps it wildly intriguing about the days of the Raj (but in Africa).
