After a busy day, nestle in with a seat on the sofa, in front of the cosy log burning stove or let the television do the entertaining for a short while before heading through to the amply-equipped kitchen to rustle up some tasty treats for the group to enjoy gathered around the dining table, planning your fun-filled holiday itinerary.

Stepping outside, end each day in style with a tipple of your choice seated on the generous tree house style balcony soaking in the captivating views across the treetops of the surrounding woodland.
