Gardens

Our five acres of gardens and orchard are set away from the road; there is plenty of room for children to play in safety and without disturbing other guests. We provide garden furniture, a badminton net, table tennis table and a croquet set on the lawn. Children can use our play area and visit Victoria House, our heated children's playhouse. In season pick apples, pears, cherries and plums from our orchard.
