Our Games Room offers a haven at the end of an activity filled day. It is a space to play darts, pool or table tennis. There are also numerous board games and a great DVD library that all guests are given access to.

CHILL OUT ON THE ISLAND

Follow the steps down to "The Island", with its babbling brook and weeping willows around the border, it is the perfect retreat at the end of the day. Spend those summer days with friends and family around the BBQ or huddle round the stone fire pit for night time campfires.
