The sitting room has 3 comfortable sofas and a wood burner, 40” flat screen TV with English free-sat, dvd player, games, books, toys, dvd's and wifi. The kitchen and living areas both have French doors leading onto the terrace, with table, 9 chairs and gas barbecue. The 10m x 5m x 1.5m heated swimming pool is close to the house and set in the large garden with lawns and mature trees. A welcome pack of essentials is provided on arrival. Home grown vegetables may be available, plus eggs from our chickens. The house has enclosed garden areas with seating to both sides. The occupants have sole use of the heated pool, which is alarmed and will be cleaned daily for you. There are sunbeds around the pool for all occupants, parasols and a solar heated shower. The large garden has lawns, mature trees and a shaded parking area, with a pathway leading up to the house. A fence is around the terrace and a smaller part of the lawn, with wide gates at the bottom of the steps leading up to the pool. For younger children, this restricts access to the pool area and larger part of the garden. A paddling pool can be provided within this fenced off area. The gates at the bottom of the steps can be swung back completely, giving full access to the pool and larger garden area with a tree house and slide, table tennis table, boules pitch, tree house and picnic bench. Beyond the main garden is an orchard with a swing set.We keep several acres free of animals for guests to walk in. Children (and adults,) are welcome to help feed the animals and groom the ponies.
