From the moment you step in to Aberdare Cottages, something in you brightens up. The manager, the staff and everyone involved have a way of making you feel at home, though you could be miles from where your heart is. The cottages, tented rooms and activities get you going and my friends and I had the best weekend and the hike was definitely our highlight of the stay there. Then the rooms and the food. Perfect!
Our family of 4 (with 2 young boys) stayed in one of the self catering cottages by the river. The cottages are clean and comfortable right on the river. It had everything we needed... hot water, bath tubs, microwave, fridge, coffee maker..... A little more could be done on the maintenance here as some of the verranda furniture was broken and a bit tatty but value for money it was worth it and the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They finally had freedom here after a few days of travelling in a car so just what was needed. We had booked into the lodge (about 3km away) which was very nice but once we heard about the river cottages we decided to move and it was definitely a great move to be on the river. There was space for the kids to run around, play in the river and fish right there too. Every evening the caretaker brought us a roaring fire in a fire grate to put in the fire place which was wonderful as it can get quite chilly in the evening. We did go to the lodge for our meals. The lodge itself is compact and cosy but charming... the owner and team have such an infectious passion and it shows. Food was Kenyan cuisine and very tasty. Drinking water is straight from the mountain and if water can ever be described as delicious it is here!! The staff at the lodge and the cottage were amazing and so helpful. We left a silver pendant here that is quite sentimental and they found it for us and are looking for a way to get it back to us which is amazing. We had a day fly fishing with John who is a wonderful guide... unfortunately we did not catch that day but had a fabulous time trying!! John showed us plants that used to be used as soap and foam in water (much to the childrens delight) and explained how to pick and process tea as we drove by tea plantations.... all in all a real true Kenyan experience with honest and sincere hospitality. Wonderful and thank you to Zac and your entire team.…
8 of us stayed at the cottages by the river. It is a most delightful place. The river is inviting, fishing is okay and it is tranquil. Everything you need for self catering is there. My only comment is that there is no hot shower. Why did you install water heaters then not connect them?
Beautiful scenery! Cottages with view on the fantastic area. Have had a great evening meal with down the river catched throut. People around very friendly and willing to help. During the breakfast on the deck you can enjoy beautiful sunrise.
