The Garden House is a stunning contemporary centrally heated holiday home of the highest quality, peaceful and detached, it offers the privacy and tranquillity of a rural but easily accessible location with the added bonus of a family focused attraction a short walk away.

Large mature gardens that include an enclosed football-games pitch, a rotating summerhouse to take advantage of both morning and evening sunshine, outside patio with seating and barbeque, and a beautiful half shaded courtyard leading into the kitchen, which is at the heart of this light open plan property.

The fully fitted kitchen has a high breakfast bar with low childrens seating area for informal drinks and snacks.

For meals the dining table within the large open plan living area, seats eight and benefits from evening sunshine through the patio doors leading onto the alfresco dining-barbeque patio.

Luxurious leather corner sofas provide ample seating for eight around the modern glass fronted wood burning stove to enjoy the 32inch flat screen digital TV-DVD player.

A modern leather king size bed room features fitted wardrobes and handmade furniture.

The main bathroom sparkles with jewel like turquoise mosaic, and features a brand new contemporary suite comprising WC, pedestal basin and wide bath with integral safety glass shower panel and electric shower.

The twin bedroom has a bright summer holiday atmosphere, with its white painted furniture and subtle blue colour scheme.

The master bedroom has been carefully designed to make you feel special. Close the bedroom door and you could be in a luxury hotel suite. Soft light filters through the frosted glass doors which lead to your en-suite bathroom.

A walk in wet room shower, toilet and wall mounted basin have been carefully positioned to allow less mobile and even wheelchair users to access all facilities without compromising on fabulous interior design.

The bunk bedroom, though not specifically for children, has a funky, young feel; teenagers will not want to haul themselves off the super size leather bean bag chair, which is also ideally suited to becoming cuddly soft seating, for bedtime stories with younger children.

Across the road at Dalton Pottery Art Cafe you can enjoy the cafe, pottery painting and play park.

There are lots of activities within easy reach, such as golf, forest cycle trials, coastal walks, castles, parks and gardens.
