Close to the house there is a spring fed, freshwater swimming lake, which the braver members of the family swim in year round. For the less hardy, the clay lining ensures that from late March - September it is a lovely temperature. For kids (big and small!) there is a paddle board, row boat and other water toys
For keen anglers, there are rods and plenty of carp to catch in the lake! Trout will be arriving in 2022.
Al Fresco dining
On the banks of the lake, next to the boathouse, we have a large South African inspired fire pit, which is fantastic for BBQ's. From 2022, the boathouse will house a dishwasher, fridge and sink, to make al fresco dining as simple and easy as possible. There are also 20 acres of grass park waiting to be explored and is perfect for picnics.
There is a wonderful large, flat lawn next to the lake which is perfect for croquet, or a kickabout. The walnut trees are home to several swings and beyond those, in the park there is a football goal for those wanting a more serious game. The gravel in front of the house has also set the scene for many a petanque battle.
