We booked to stay here for one night at the end of our honeymoon as I love animals and I wanted to fulfill my dream to get up close to one of the most stunning beautiful animals in the world which was our main reason to book to stay . however I wasn't expecting to also stay in a beautiful stately home the photos just don't do it justice ..it's stunning and so homely .. Ur made to feel at home from the moment u arrive staff are so welcoming friendly polite . They took our bags straight up to our room which they have us a free upgrade as they had a cancellation and we had booked only a standard room as we booked last minute ( advice book early ) and we were very lucky.
Next we were offered drinks whilst we freshened up then given lunch whilst they took all our clothes that we needed laundered to be sorted out by the morning . Lunch was lovely we were then taken down to the giraffe center as I couldn't wait I fed and stroked giraffes wow wow . We had then booked a trip to daphne sheldrick orphanage poor elephants babies were so lovey u just want to take one home we adopted one and then back to the manor for pre dinner drinks by the fire with the other guests just like u would at home and then giraffe time as they simply wander back and forth from the giraffe center to the Manor all day then we had a romantic dinner outside was yummy service and staff so warm and friendly and high standard excellent .
After dinner drinks then get some photos inside the manor it's really stunning but homely do chat to the staff they are charming and loved talking to the guests. We then went up to our room to find the bedroom fire lit and celebratory honeymoon drinks on ice awaiting us really nice thoughtful and unexpected so we got cozy had our drinks in front of the fire very romantic . I was up at 5 am by 5.30 I was ready at the window waiting for the giraffes they were on time the baby jock running to the window I was so excited I can't describe it 3 giraffes at my window to see me woke my husband who could see I was so excited started taking pics saying omg can't believe its 5.30 we are at the window with giraffes !! Haha it was magical amazing !!! We fed them with pellets the manor provide
especially in the bedrooms for this . We then went down to breakfast to find lots of giraffes waiting head through the windows waiting to eat with us I cannot tell I how amazing how wow this was if u like animals then book a night here ! I spent 3 hours feeding cuddling stroking them we have amazing memories had our breakfast with them .
Check out is 10 but they let is stay till 12 just relaxing and then took us by private car to our next hotel . We we're sad to leave we will definitely return. 5 star overall in every way plus the giraffe experience stick it on ur bucket list . Any questions feel free to ask me
