THE  GROUNDS

Relax and absorb the beautiful surroundings of this luxury property.

Tennis, boating, kayaking, open swimming, walking, and bird watching, all of these activities can be enjoyed in the 30 acres of garden, woodland, and lakes around the house.

We have extensive wildlife including otters, deer, foxes, squirrels, kingfishers, swans, egret, herons, cormorants, grebe, geese, a variety of ducks, woodpeckers, reed warblers, kites, buzzards, and many more, a nature lovers paradise.

Set in 30 tranquil acres of lakes, woodlands, and gardens this extremely well-equipped home is popular with guests wanting a stress-free relaxing break or a venue with activities on site.  A terrace overlooking the lake has stunning views and the opportunity to observe the extensive variety of birds and wildlife.

 

There is parking for several cars and a double garage at the property. Having been a holiday let for many years the property is managed and maintained by the owners whose family built the house and created the grounds and they are available to help with any queries or requests.

If you like to cook, there is a fine herb garden in the courtyard, to enjoy the fruits of your labour, sit on the terrace and take in the fabulous view of the lake. There is also a large built-in barbeque to suit any chef.

For those who like more physical activities, there is a hard tennis court, which also accommodates a football goalpost and basketball hoop. To make the most of the beautiful lake, rowing boats and kayaks are available for use, we also provide life jackets to keep you and your family safe.

 

The lake is safe for open water swimming, but children must be watched at all times.

The network of footpaths amongst the trees, connects with several public footpaths running past the property.

The green wheel cycle route around Peterborough passes through the village, making it ideal for keen cyclists.

 

We are lucky to have a large variety of wildlife on our doorstep, literally! from swans, egrets, herons, and mallards to shovelers, woodpeckers, owls, and Canadian geese.  One of our country's most beautiful and colourful birds, the kingfisher is a daily visitor. We now welcome other rare guests to our shores, otters!

The gardens are mostly lawn and mature trees including specimen varieties such as medlar, mulberry, and tulip trees. Please note that the gardens are not secure and wildlife roams freely, this is why there are NO PETS except for registered assistance dogs.
