Stride out over 22 acres past the ha ha, the roses and the lovingly tended, walled, vegetable garden. Secluded seating in the extensive gardens lends itself to contemplation or reading a good book. How about archery, falconry, an owl prowl or a Victorian carriage ride across the Somerset Levels … or take to the air in a hot air balloon and enjoy the stunning scenery. The possibilities are endless in this green oasis and there's plenty for the children to enjoy on site and locally. Croquet, badminton, table tennis are available.
