The cottages in Palmgrove have a positive effect on the mind. Comfort is the keyword here. The cottages have wall-to-wall carpeting and individually controlled A/C facilities.
The rooms are old fashioned big, airy and have a touch of the Victorian elegance to them. When you enter the cottage, you see a combination room that acts as a sit-out and a dining room. An evening of total relaxation is what this room signifies. Next, you come to the living room where you can entertain visitors and hold center stage. A bedroom that is comfort personified follows the living room. Nice and cozy, you can curl up in bed with an interesting book and fall sound asleep in some time. The bedroom leads to a dressing room with an attached bath. To top it all, the cottages have independent car parks, which are totally secure and safe.
