starred robin cottage

Starred Robin Cottage is a quaint, English-style country cottage, decorated with oak furniture and a cream and white palette.  The deck is garlanded with rambling roses and overlooks a fairy ring of Silver Birch trees and the rolling lawn leads down into the forest's stream. The cottage's namesake, a pair of Starred Robins, are resident. This shy insect eater is notoriously difficult to spot. Another pair nest at Wood Owl cottage. You are also likely to see the troop of Samango monkeys who regularly raid the lemon tree. Children will be delighted to find the playground near this cottage, it includes a jungle gym and swing.

This self-catering cottage has underfloor heating to keep you snug, a queen-sized bed and an antique cast iron Victorian tub and shower in the en-suite bathroom. The spacious, open plan living area has a multi-fuel cast-iron stove as a fireplace with a sleeper couch for children. A wooden ladder leads up to an additional loft with two single beds. The kitchen is equipped with a two plate hob, fridge and microwave. The sun deck has a small braai. There is an electronic safe available. A laundry service and a housekeeper are available if required.
