The large front porch has comfortable seating and an outdoor dining area which is ideal for picnic lunches. It is the hub of activity in the early evenings as guests congregate to share stories, or just watch the wildlife playing in the garden. Parking is free and right outside the front gate on a private no-through road. Wifi is free and works in all rooms and throughout the garden. The splash pool (at 5 metres diameter it’s a little small for serious swimmers) is perfect to cool off on a hot summers day (approx May to September). Guests are welcome to enjoy the garden at any time. There is room for everyone to sunbathe or sit in the shade. We love to watch the woodpeckers, wrens, robins and blue tits feeding in the shrubs or watch the red squirrels chase each other around the trees.
