The house can accommodate up to 18 guests and has a cosy, family home feel to it, with an open log fire, a deep veranda overlooking the lake and a lush garden full of trees and flowers. In the main house, the master bedroom has fabulous views across the lake to the conical, volcanic peak of Mount Longonot and the Aberdare Mountain Range. Adjoining this there is an enchanting twin ‘bird room’ which was hand-painted with East African birds for the Hopcraft children over 60 years ago. Siriane Guest Cottage on the lawn adjacent to the house has two en-suite doubles, again with fabulous views over the lake, and a second Muse Guest House at the back of the property has a family suite and two further rooms. The house has a clay tennis court for guest use and is ideally located for a host of water-sports.
