The Tennis Court

The tennis court is shared by Hall and Cottage guests alike.  We leave rackets and balls for you to borrow.  Booking isn't required - just be considerate if others are waiting. 

The Carsington Trail

You can access the trail around Carsington Water directly from our land.  We've left directions - but it's 300 meters from the property and you're directly onto the 8-mile track around the stunning reservoir.  Ideal for cycling, walking and running. 



We leave lots of games and toys for your to borrow in the Games Room and main house.

We've put in an enormous outdoor table next to the kitchen with a large charcoal BBQ so that you can all eat together outside. 

The Piano

Nothing is more fun than a sing-song around the piano - you just need to invite someone that can play!
