Also available are six heritage bedrooms set around the picturesque courtyard, with reverse cycle air-conditioning. Two are en suite rooms (one with a claw foot bath), the other four sharing bathroom facilities. Guests of the courtyard take breakfast in the dining hall and also have access to the main house and gardens.

Colonial cool in summer, cosy log fires in winter; perfect for a short break from the city. One visit won’t be enough.
