The pubs in the area also offer outstanding beers and ciders that are produced locally and we can advise you where to try based on your own preferences and our experience.

The area also offers plenty for those who enjoy walking – some trails start straight from the house – and we can offer advice about where to go depending on your level of enthusiasm.

Guests who want to play golf will find several golf courses in the area.

During the year the area hosts several country and steam shows which are always worth a visit, especially for anyone interested in steam power and classic machinery. If you contact us we can advise when and where the various events will be.
