Team-building activities


Make full use of the grounds by enjoying the swimming pools and gardens. Organise some lawn games such as croquet or boules, or enjoy the range of books and games in the library.

“An incredible place. The owner and the concierges are very helpful, we were a large group and were able to take advantage of the swimming pool and the facilities available to us. Everything was very clean, easy to access and functional. We will definitely be back!”
