                          Really enjoyed the hospitality and the space to explore the farm. Beautiful accommodation made all the better by friendly and helpful staff. We will definitely be back. One area for improvement could be the breakfast/supper options but overall we had a great time.Establishments response:Dear Ridhaa Thank you for taking the time to write the wonderful review on SafariNow!

                          Lovely ambiance in bucolic surroundings and with great owners and staff. This was our second stay and we shall definitely return! Due to work commitments, we only stayed for one night on 22 January 2010.
