We have lots of board games, a foosball table, 2 guitars and a piano aswell as large screen TV’s in the sitting and dining rooms. The accommodation sections are split in two, with an upstairs and a downstairs section, which makes it ideal for splitting up groups. We have a fully equipped self-catering kitchen available.
