Outside Areas

Around the property



'house in the field' has a number of quirky benches situated around the grounds to make the most of the amazing countryside views .

Each month offers something new and exciting from the wild flowers meadows in May to the golden fields of sunflowers in July, the long hot days of August and the migrating swallows in September.

Lazy days by the pool



Feel free to explore the private and public woodlands all around us. 

Have a game of croquet, scandanavian skittles, water polo or simply unwind around your private pool on those long hot summer days while enjoying a relaxing spa or beauty treatment  which can be arranged prior to your arrival.

You won't want to go home!

A night under the stars


Beyond the pool, is a luxury 5m bell tent with coir matting, double air mattress, romantic lights, bunting and candles providing an additional glamping experience for any of our guests who might like to sleep out under the stars! 

There is a small charge for tent bedding but the use of the tent is complimentary!

Bird Watching


There are binoculars for keen birdwatchers and this year's visitors have included a pair of golden oriels (who enjoyed our fig trees) hoopoes and flocks of migrating swallows who spent a few days with us before heading south!

The Sky at Night


We have panoramic skies which are  perfect for sunsets and with no light pollution you can really appreciate the night sky. Meteor showers, shooting stars, orbiting space stations and the occasional spectacular lightning storms are not uncommon. 



Enjoy an evening swim, have a sunset BBQ or push the boat out and spend an evening toasting marshmallows over the firepit.

But if all else fails, you will find books, board games, CD's DVD's, Freesat UK TV and wifi.
