Settle down for dinner with all of your loved ones around before sinking into the sofa and tuning into the TV or playing a board game brought from home.

Once the evening has drown to a close, make your way upstairs to retire to one of the two bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom which is served by a cloakroom and a ground-floor bathroom with shower over bath, basin and WC.

Outside, table and chairs offer an alternative dining arrangement and overlooks the River Ant and the indoor swimming pool promises family fun and a good way to while a couple of hours during a rainy day.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful base, a stone’s throw away is the Wayford Bridge Inn and a short walk will take you to the local shop.
