Description of Villa
Good Hope Plantation in Falmouth has been lovingly restored as a fabulous estate which has its history recorded from the 18th Century….absolute gracious surroundings with today’s contemporary comfort and conveniences. As the year 2000 unfolded, an old cut stone building was restored into a spectacular 3 bedroom villa. Sitting moments away from the rivers swimming hole, River Cottage is ideal for a small family gathering or for a small group of friends, or for retreat participants. All bedrooms are air-conditioned with private bathrooms.
Decorated with works of local artisans and using native bullet wood lumber to create the oversized balcony, River Cottage is yet another dream come true. This lovely cottage has the most wonderful original antiques; the beds are of carved mahogany and original buffet tables and side tables with historic value.
