Opulent decoration and furnishings create a peaceful setting for rest and relaxation. ‘Magennes’ is our golden double bedroom with a delicate, warm and sunny feel to it.

Outside, our beautiful property is approached on a long private spectacular tree lined drive. The house has its own courtyard with plenty of parking, with gardens to the front and side. Dog owners will be excited about the safe enclosed courtyard and the outdoor shed for furry family members who need it.
