The Grounds

Plan of our 75 acre grounds

The cottages are surrounded by 75 acres of our grounds. These are laid out as a new forest and grassland. We are managing this land in order to create a diverse wildflower haven for birds and bees.

There are lots of places to picnic and BBQ. We provide some portable fire pits to allow you to make a safe fire where you wish.

It takes about an hour to walk around the border. Dotty our Sprocker Spaniel will show you around if you are up for a walk!
