The surrounding rolling countryside is adjacent to the historic site of Camelot - reputedly the fortress of King Arthur. A brook runs along the boundary of the garden which has a choice of sitting/eating out areas and 2 BBQs. The interior has been finished to a high standard and has been awarded a 4*tourist board grading and in 2013 was further graded with a Gold Award. There is off road parking for two cars.
