French windows from the open plan sitting room lead onto the patio home to a dining set to make outside dining easy. Down one small step onto a large lawn area perfect for children and dogs to run around. a perfect space to play the garden games available. Pretty established boarders and shrubbery and a well kept summer mown lawn. Views of the cottage's private 3 acre field (dogs allowed) merge into views which reach over 50 miles. At the front of the garden there is a raised decking area with sit soft sofas and a table - a perfect place for morning croissants and coffee whilst stoking up the hot tub. From here you can dip straight into the hot tub via a small walkway. Views are incredible from this part of the garden.

Oh and don't forget Clemmie and Claude - the two Shetland ponies who love to see and be petted by our guests.
