We regret that, due to the danger of the large deepwater pond at the front of the property, we are unable to accommodate children. We have, therefore, furnished the rooms to a very high standard, with the complete comfort of adult guests in mind.
Our guests have complete freedom of movement to and from our self-contained barn accommodation wing. There is ample off-road car parking available.To make a booking please call us today.
