Parking is in the 2 acre landscaped gardens not far from Barnacle Barn, just across the lawn through its own private enclosed garden. There is a path if it is wet, which hopefully it won't be for your holidays!
We welcome you to take a stroll round the garden with magnificent mature English oak in the middle,one of several around the garden. There is a small lake and access is down a winding gravel drive which winds into the garden through trees and Rhododendron.
You are welcome to enjoy a picnic or barbeque in the gardens.
There are paths to explore around the pond which has ducks and moorhens, rare black water shrews, voles, and shoals of tench if clear. The managed long grass areas host marsh orchids in summer and the margins sport wild mushrooms Blewit and The Prince in autumn. From early evening a barn owl occasionally hunts here, later accompanied by bats, with the distinctive large Daubenton's bats over the pond. The BTO has recorded 7 species of bat in the garden!
We have a lovely rural location a short walk from the village which offers your local pub, 24 hour petrol station with shop and off licence, award winning chip shop with restaurant, farm shop with cafe, medieval round tower church, all within walking distance.
