From the Owner

We are sure you will find our 8 acres of new parkland absolutely delightful, we have tried to maintain a balance of useability whilst not disturbing the wildlife and fauna. Our 10m x 5m in-ground swimming pool was constructed new in 2010 to the highest safety and hygiene standards. Being heated and with a telescopic enclosure you will be able to enjoy it whatever the weather. It is fenced and within view of all the cottages, important when children are using pool. Likewise we have added a 6 seater hot tub together with a covered seating area. Our Boules court is 60 foot long and will provide entertaiment to both young and old alike. If you have never played Boules be warned- it is very addictive.
