A guest review: We stayed in cottage no. 1 and enjoyed the fact that the downstairs room had a shower. There is a lovely stand-alone Victorian bath in the upstairs room. The interior design of this spacious cottage is most attractive and all equipment and utensils are top-of-the-range. Absolutely everything we could have wanted was there, right down to complimentary tea, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper and salad dressing! We loved the indoor fireplace where we could braai on cold evenings, and also enjoyed the huge sofas with their many cushions where we could spread out and watch Wimbledon tennis on the big-screen TV. The beds were extremely comfortable and we appreciated the electric blankets for the winter. Not many self-catering places are serviced daily: we felt thoroughly spoiled having two ladies come in each day to make beds, wash dishes and do a general tidy up. They were pleasant, efficient and discreet.
