Reopened in Autumn 2019 following a one year extensive renovation, they offer a luxurious base to retreat to and enjoy. When booked together you will also have exclusive use of our beautiful 70 acre organic farm and wildlife trails, and for an additional fee you can also have our course fishing lake to yourselves for as long as you like.

With a lovely big kitchen equipped to cook for big groups with a Smeg range cooker, big fridge/freezer, pantry, 6 ring induction hob, breakfast bar and high quality cookware.
