Garden

A hidden garden is for the exclusive use of our guests.  It is a woodland  setting in dappled light, a profusion of shrubs, perennials and annuals and a delight in all seasons.  Daffodils, primulae and tulips of early spring are followed by Lenten roses, bluebells,  Solomon’s Seal and roses.  From then until frost there is a tangle of fuchsias, Monk’s Hood, astilbe, daisies, huge mop heads of hydrangeas and bright annuals. Bird feeders  attract a variety of song birds who live in the shelter of the ancient laurel hedge.  High overhead, bald eagles build their nests.

Loft Bedroom

Upstairs in the former hayloft is an enormous 23′ x 23′ bedroom with a comfortable king-size bed & recently added ensuite.  The bedroom decor is calm and relaxing in pure white and soft French blue.  Beside the bed is ample light for reading.
