Its not just cottages

Don’t forget that if you meeting up as a family or a group of friends we have The Hangout meeting room with its dedicated kitchen and toilet available for you to hire. The Hangout has a 49 inch LG 4K UHD Smart flat screen TV with Freeview and internet access for Netflix etc. If 49 inches isn’t big enough there is a pull down screen with an audio visual amplifier and projector for your use. Such a facility allows you to get together, dine together or party as a group whilst being able to retreat to the privacy of your own cottage when you want some ‘me’ time.

The Play Barn provides another place you can all get together and be competitive over a game of pool, table tennis, air hockey or table football. The little ones can play with the toys provided whilst you read one of the many books on offer.
