There are lots of places outside to sit and take in the magnificent views. The conservatory leads on to a sheltered patio, shaded by a lovely, old beech tree. Pizzas are cooked in minutes in the hand-made pizza oven. Alternatively, sit out on the deck for breakfast or if you prefer full sun throughout the afternoon. A well stocked cottage-style garden provides a pretty haven. Steps lead down to a flat garden ideal for children and dogs. Further steps lead down to the river -it's a minute's walk to the renowned Saracen's Head pub, Royal Lodge Hotel, Canoe Centre and access to local footpaths and cycle trails.
