Open for walking and cycling all year round (34 kms of paths), it has a fascinating “big house” as well as bicycle and canoe hire facilities.

Accommodation comprises of a living/dining area with wood burning stove (and piano for the nimble fingered), bedroom with double bed and linen provided, en suite shower room with electric shower (towels provided) and a private patio area for al fresco dining.
