Bedroom one - the master bedroom - has a king size bed and is ensuite with family bathroom. Access to bedroom 4 is via bedroom 1. Bedroom two is in the 'tower' and is a twin room which can also be made up as a king size double. The shower room is also in the tower. Bedroom three has twin beds and is next door to the tower room and shares the shower room. Bedroom four is a twin room accessed via bedroom one. The landing at the top of the stairs is a large open space with window, which can be used for two additional folding beds, with 2 privacy screens. We can send you a layout plan.
Lawned gardens with roses, colourful flower beds and mature trees. The gardens are enclosed by fences and when the main gates are closed it is (to our knowledge) safe for dogs to roam free. Large private courtyard with BBQ, very sunny patio outside the kitchen with table, chairs and shaded pergola, plus main dining table for 10 people in covered shelter, with BBQ, music system and party lights.
Large heated swimming pool (12m x 6m) with Roman steps and ‘telescopic’ removable cover which makes it completely safe, keeps the heat in at night and provides an 'indoor' swimming experience in poor weather. Private use of pool during high season. Pool heating is not normally necessary in summer, when the pool is normally over 29 degrees but can be arranged at £40 per week.
When you arrive, we will be delighted to meet you and answer any questions you might have. We will stay in an adjoining property for one night whilst you settle in, then we will leave and return the night before the end of your holiday. Please arrive after 4.00pm and leave before 10.00am
