We are just off the N21 for great access to local attractions with shops and restaurants within a 20 minute walk or 2 minutes by car.


The Lake Two acres in size, set in six acres of woods and grassland is damned at one end and is stream fed to ensure the lake remains at full level throughout the year. It is lined with Willows, Silver Birch, various shrubs and Iris Reeds. At the damn end the depth is about seven feet, going down to 2 feet at the road end. The far bank is lined with over hanging trees where the carp love to hang out.
