The perfect place to relax and unwind. A wet room with shower and wc leads directly off the pool room.

Upstairs, an airy and spacious oak-floored lounge also overlooks the pool area and has a remote controlled fire, 50” TV/DVD/blue ray and exquisite hillside views, Play your choice of music through a Harmon Kardon sound system with ceiling speakers and sound controls for each room throughout the cottage.
