From the lounge there is an adjoining conservatory with all weather awnings and another dining area. From the conservatory you can then access the patio area & gardens where you can relax in the sun or stroll around the amazing gardens and walk ways at your leisure.

There are 6 suites, 5 suites are in the main house 1 of which is a double suite sleeping 4 and a beautiful garden suite called the Pavilion Suite, there is also now 2 queen bedrooms upstairs and 2 fold away beds which can be put in any of the larger suites

We are generally pretty laid back and easy going, we enjoy going for walks and most sports but I am a keen footballer, tennis player, trout fisherman. I design and make jewellery for a living which isn't really a job as I enjoy it so much and also help run our B&B with my wife Caroline. We enjoy travelling and love Vietnam and Cambodia, We really enjoy Vietnamese street food its so tasty and fresh. I love to cook and Caroline likes to bake cakes and treats, so if you catch any trout locally and want them smoked no problem and if you don't catch anything no worries you might find one in the fridge, if I have caught any and I usually do, so if you need a trout guide I'm your man! My life motto is every cloud has a silver lining (if I dont catch trout at least my casting is getting practice).
