In this bright room you can quietly relax overlooking the south-facing garden, watch the native birds or flick through the selection of books and magazines. The patio doors lead you into the garden where you can sit and enjoy the sun.
For the evenings we have books, magazines, board games and of course satellite television for you to enjoy.
