Outside
We have six acres sloping down to the east with the house at the highest point. There is about an acre of lawns, 2 acres of pasture grazed by sheep and 3 acres of woodland. We stay in a chalet about 100 yards from the main house so that we are on hand to deal with problems or supply information.

There is a circular in-ground swimming pool 6ft deep and 18 ft in diameter with a Lacron 16" filtration plant which ensures crystal clear water at all times. Gates to the pool area can be kept closed if you have small children. In use May 30 - September 15.

There are three tables, many deck chairs and several park type benches for garden furniture. A raised platform with a fireplace on top makes for comfortable barbecues.

A flat area beyond the pool has a badminton court.
