Everything is laid out flexibily. A bar area near the hot tub can be used for training sessions and the games room is perfect for formal receptions. Outdoors, tables and chairs can be arranged as you like on the decking and patios.
Beyond, a pretty garden, woodland, orchard and 100-acre farm are wonderful places to explore. Hartpiece is an organic farm with Higher Stewardship status; sheep, Aberdeen angus and llamas are fascinating to watch and happy to have the occasional carrot!
“We have had a marvellous family holiday (without any arguments, which says a lot about the accommodation, the beds, and the other facilities). The covered terrace was a real winner and scene of some memorable meals. The games room was also a winner with some memorable battles. Thanks for it all.”
The Kelly Family, 23/8/13
