There's More


There are beautifully maintained gardens and we always welcome more green fingered members to assist us in the up-keep of these wonderful spaces.

For sun lovers, there is a south facing terrace with an array of tables and chairs with sun parasols to keep you cool in the summer sun.

The second area of garden is a beautiful space where you can retire for some peace and quiet, watch the birds and get some free Vitamin D with the sun on your face.
