A choice of Electric blankets or hot water bottles is available to keep you warm and cosy. A secure parking at the back of the main house, near the cottages gives additional sense of safety.

After a comfortable and relaxing night, enjoy either a full English or continental breakfast in our dining room or out on the terrace overlooking the private and immaculately kept garden.Our professional chef prides himself with scrumptious cuisine and meals for the guests with special dietary requirements. Buffet dinner is served in the cosy dinning room giving a family get together atmosphere.
