Goblin’s Creek Manor House
, situated in quiet peaceful surroundings, welcomes guests with a sherry on arrival.
As you enter the spacious and very comfortable sitting room, huge overstuffed sofas invitingly beckon you to sit cozily with a good book and liqueur in front of a huge roaring log fire in winter. Or, equally inviting in summertime, light and airy with French doors opening onto the large surrounding verandah and garden.
Facilities at Goblin`s Creek Manor House:
Open plan to the sitting room and dining area is the large pleasant farm style kitchen for self catering purposes, equipped with all you could need, giving a free flow for easy and relaxed socializing, whether in the kitchen, the sitting room or outdoors.
The smell of home made rusks baking often fills the kitchen inviting guests to brew a cup of delicious filter coffee and dunk a rusk. These are available to guests at all times.
For early risers an ideal place to relax and enjoy that first early morning cuppa is the large verandah running the full frontage of the guesthouse. From here watch the splendid sunrises or on a perfect evening enjoy a sundowner and enjoy the sound of the many different birds as the dusk settles into darkness.
Under a huge old tree in the garden is an ideal shady spot to relax with a nearby unique Koi pond feature. Close by in a lovely sheltered spot is a swimming pool for cooling off on the hot summer days or just lounging around relaxing for some sunbathing.
