This will suit the most discerning travellers and guarantee your stay will be a memorable one.
The property has a lake, therefore supervision is required for guests with small children. While the lake is accessible by car, it can get very slippery in winter, so it is recommended that you walk down during the wetter months.
Please note there are several CCTV cameras at the property. However, they are for surveillance purposes, when the property is vacant, only. Therefore, these will NOT be switched on during your stay.
Bookings are open to all families and groups over 27yrs old.
