Holiday Rental House
Located in Genda, a traditional village in Mukono district, Martha’s Farmhouse offers unexpected comfort, as well as plenty of fresh air, relaxing tropical gardens and glorious views. Built on ancestral family land, we are surrounded by an acre of tropical and scented walled gardens, and situated within a fifteen-acre coffee and banana plantation. We deliver something completely different – the sense of being miles away and yet we are just an hour’s drive from both Kampala, Uganda’s lively capital and Jinja, where The Nile starts its journey. We are also in easy reach of Uganda’s main airport at Entebbe. Martha’s Farmhouse has been sensitively and attractively furnished, combining both Ugandan and European styles.

Built on ancestral family land, we are surrounded by an acre of tropical and scented walled gardens, and situated within a fifteen-acre coffee and banana plantation. We deliver something completely different – the sense of being miles away and yet we are just an hour’s drive from both Kampala, Uganda’s lively capital and Jinja, where The Nile starts its journey. We are also in easy reach of Uganda’s main airport at Entebbe. Martha’s Farmhouse has been sensitively and attractively furnished, combining both Ugandan and European styles. A large, high-ceilinged and airy open plan living and dining room take up the centre of the house, with bedroom wings on either side. Our location takes full advantage of the views across the valley to tea plantations and guests can relax on our large verandahs, snooze in a hammock, potter in the garden or visit the farm. We have also just finished building our swimming pool which is so popular with guests. Each of our three double bedrooms will guarantee you a comfortable stay. The master bedroom spans the width of the house, with french doors at either end, opening on to private verandahs. As well as a king-size four poster bed, the suite has comfortable sitting and dressing areas. Its bathroom has a full-size bath and twin basins and leads on to a separate, semi-open air, shower room. The second and third bedrooms are similarly comfortably furnished, each with four poster beds, a shared bathroom has a large, walk-in shower. Because the privacy and comfort of our guests is paramount, Martha’s Farmhouse is only rented in its entirety. Our guests come to unwind, get away from the city noise, find a quiet place to work or simply enjoy wide-open spaces. More

My second stay at Martha's Farmhouse, and it just gets better. The new pool is fantastic - and Charlie and Norah continue to be great hosts. I'll be coming again.

That is the meal we had for lunch today at Martha's and what a meal it was. The kind of meal you eat with relish and wish never comes to an end. The goat luwombo was so aromatic and tender the meat just melted in...More

Oh what can I say, Fred? It was really nice having you around and getting to show you round the Farmhouse too. Please do come back when you are next in Uganda. The farm will have changed a lot too.
