The five-bar gate at the top of the drive encloses this most magical garden with large pond which wraps around the cottage. With exquisite topiary, stunning feature roses and so many nooks to explore, this glorious garden really is special.

At the front of the cottage is a water fountain with lilies, which the kitchen window overlooks. It provides the tranquil sound of trickling water and a super place for birds and other wildlife to drink. At the rear of the cottage there are two picnic tables by the pond for al fresco dining, with BBQ provided, and a small piece of lawn. There is no fencing around the pond so children must be supervised at all times.

Dogs are welcome downstairs at Wassicks Cottage, and although they must be on a lead within the garden and farm because of the animals, there is a meadow next to the cottage where dogs can freely enjoy the space.
