Unwind on the plush corner sofa, with a plethora of games, DVDs and books to keep you and your guests entertained throughout your stay.

On warmer days, make use of the delightful garden, take a leisurely seat to soak in the sun or indulge in a soak amongst the bubbles in the hot tub; this setting is also the ideal place for stargazing due to the lack of light pollution, so be sure to look up at the sky as you indulge in the hot tub.
