Wheelchair accessible

This former summer house has a dramatic coastal location set within beautiful grounds. It has its own livestock, including pigs and chickens, and there is a walled garden, which provides much of the produce for the popular restaurant, which is in an authentically reproduced greenhouse. Alfresco eating is possible in the warmer months as there is a wood-fired oven in the grounds. Bedrooms come in an array of shapes and sizes, located in the main house, and there are some feature rooms in outbuildings. All are generally spacious, have high quality fixtures and come with their own larders and Nespresso machines. There are plenty of comfortable lounges where guests can make themselves at home too, including a cosy cocktail lounge. Treatments can be taken in the two attractively converted shepherd's huts, and there's a room just perfect for private dining within the grounds.
