This is the perfect spot to enjoy breakfast together. There are also 2 dining areas, both seating up to 12 guests as well as a separate laundry room equipped with both washing machine and tumble dryer as well as ironing board and drying racks.

Outside, the property is set in spectacular gardens. There is a large covered terrace with BBQ and pizza oven, perfect for al fresco dining. There is a second seating area under a gazebo which enjoys superb views over the garden and surrounding countryside. Plenty of seating is also provided around the swimming pool with luxurious loungers to relax on with a good book!
