Fun spaces

The dining area has space enough for groups of up to 50 (please contact us for numbers over 18), there’s also room here for some after dinner dancing. The seating area has large sofas beside the log fire, or in the summer, open up the french doors to the sunny courtyard and hear the sound of the water trickling over the fountain.

Garden and hot tub

The pretty 4 acre garden gives you plenty of room to roam, especially if you have children in your group who want to burn off some energy and there’s a teepee too, for making camp in, with a nearby fire pit for toasting marshmallows, as the sun slowly sets. The courtyard garden is an adults delight, sheltered and serene, with the large covered hot tub to enjoy and an outdoor table tennis for entertainment.
