Garden From the flagstone terrace with a large table and seating for eight, the full extent of the garden is almost hidden. Walk further along the path and the garden gradually reveals itself. If you are very lucky, at this moment you'll hear the clock strike in the nearby St Michael's Church that forms an imposing backdrop to the scene.

From the highest point of the garden you can look over rooftops to Exmoor. Please be advised that due to the nature of the buildings and their surroundings, we don't allow barbeques.
