Get out and about in this area of natural beauty by bike, on foot or on the back of a horse. Children will love collecting eggs and feeding the resident chickens. The gardens have been designed to encourage wildlife; there are frog boxes, bat boxes and various bird-nesting boxes; use the provided binoculars and spot birds at the feeding stations; stay in the Seagull room and you'll have a bird's eye view of spotted flycatchers nesting on the wall below in the spring months.
Children are welcome in the restaurant at breakfast, and there's a children's tea sitting at 6.30pm (or earlier by prior arrangement). Lunch for parents and children can also be arranged with prior notice. Parents are encouraged to look at the kids menu before arrival so that they can let staff know if they want anything different; otherwise smaller portions from the adult menu can be served at a reduced price. Children can also eat in their rooms; a high chair will be provided. Strattons will also knock up lovely organic packed lunches, and will heat up milk and baby food for you.
