Enjoy the sumptuous breakfast in the dining room or outside on the verandah. Relax in the lounge in front of a crackling fire in winter. Make use of the honesty bar or even ask for hot drinks, plan the next day, read or just watch TV. For the comfort of our guests the building is a non-smoking area. Smokers are welcome to enjoy their cigarette on the verandah. Children above 12 years of age are welcome.

Relax in the spacious garden, where Shona sculptures will give you an insight into African culture. Shona sculpture is perhaps the most important new art form to emerge in this century and although it is only 40 years old, has established a strong international reputation. Shona sculpture has drawn collectors such as the Rockefellers, the Rothchilds, and Prince Charles. On a hot summer day you can cool off in the swimming pool.
