Throughout the gardens and grounds, you will find peaceful, shady spots to relax in. Settle down with a good book on one of the garden benches, or just while away the time sunbathing around the beautiful pool. Peacefully located but within easy reach of the beach, mountains, historic towns and wonderful countryside....With a spacious kitchen, sunny sitting room and double doors which open onto a private terrace Orchard Cottage offers a picturesque, relaxed setting to enjoy your holiday.
