For teens: a games room with pool table, table tennis, air hockey and table football. A woodland walk with a 6mtr swing over the sloping ground – great for thrill seekers.

Some properties are pet friendly with safe, secured gardens and the most wonderful walks. Your pet will be comfortable too with: bowls, warm pet shower, towels and pet bed.
