With large oak beams, skylights, cream walls, beautiful light fittings and modern furniture the room exudes class — the perfect environment for a memorable dinner party. The huge oak dining table can accommodate 14 guests in total, with additional seating on the patio.

The dining room is attached to a modern kitchen with all of the modern conveniences that a budding chef might require: Flavel range cooker with four door oven and hob, microwave, kitchen utensils and modern appliances. There is also an outdoor coal BBQ and seating for alfresco dining. Enjoying the beautifully manicured gardens while having a white wine and BBQ dinner is a fantastic way to spend an evening. After dinner you can also enjoy a dip in the outdoor hot tub!
