OUTSIDE LEISURE 

Sitting on its own sheltered terrace overlooking fields and woods – this heated pool makes a perfect centrepiece for your holiday. The state-of-the-art salt-treatment system means – no more reddened eyes! The water remains silky soft and does not damage your hair or skin as you might find with a chlorine-pool.   The terraced pool area is situated at a slightly lower level and has plenty of leisure furniture. The heated 12 x 5 metre salt-water pool provides an ideal focus for your holiday.  The pool is heated from (usually) mid April to the end of September and if the weather remains favourable into October. The pool is closed during the rest of the year. Whether you fancy a whole day relaxing on the pool terrace or a quick dip after sightseeing you will find the pool soon becomes a favourite spot.

Tennis  - We have a key to the village tennis court and guests are welcome to borrow this. There is also a practice area and a children’s play park. We have some rackets and balls should anyone wish to borrow them.

Table tennis  - There is a table tennis table in the garden which proves popular for both the quiet and dignified game for two, or a highly competitive family challenge.

Bikes  - For those that want to get out and about on bikes we have 4 bikes which you are welcome to borrow. We also have some maps and routes you can use to help you plan your trips.

Giant Chess - This is a definite favourite for adults and children alike!
