Life In The Slow Lane

Here you can experience life at a slower pace – we guarantee you will enjoy it! Forget formality. Take off your watch and socks; stow your phone and computer and just enjoy the calm. Go for walks, borrow a bike, enjoy the pool, relax by the pond, play croquet, read a book – just “be” in this lovely place.

The gardens are a wonderful feature and we love it when our guests enjoy them to the full.  Try taking supper under the willow tree by the pond and see if you can make yourselves heard over the singing of the nightingale, the zinging of the cicadas, the calls of the frogs!
