CHILDRENS PLAY AREA
Children’s play equipment provides a safe and fun environment which is not only environmentally friendly but also encouraging children to develop the following skills and attributes: physical agility, socialising, co – ordination, balance, imaginative play, physical strength, spatial awareness. “Maxplay” commercial systems comply with BS EN71 including part 8 and are CE certified. These beautifully finished and incredibly strong wooden climbing frames are made from solid, large cross section, pressure treated timber, sourced from ecologically well managed Scandinavian forests. This equipment is intended for use by children between the ages of 4 and 14 years. Adult supervision is recommended at all times.
ALL WEATHER TENNIS COURT
The playing surface Courturf, provides a fast and exhilarating game with good, true ball bounce. It has a high level of player comfort, allowing good foot movement and preventing foot-lock.
HILLFIELD OUTDOOR POOL
Outdoor 48’ x 24’ Swimming Pool with a toddler’s paddling pool, opens from June to September. The enclosed South facing position enables the use of passive solar energy to optimise the amount of heat that can be derived directly from the sun. This is a green and clean source of useful “Passive Solar Energy” without the use of active mechanical systems.
Shuffleboard, already hugely popular elsewhere in the world, is still new to Europe. It is truly a game for all ages and abilities that can quickly become an addictive and highly competitive sport. Shuffleboard is an exciting game for all ages that can be played outdoors, making it ideal for our changing weather. A combination of bowls and curling, shuffleboard is played on a pre-made robust court.
A large playing field for all ball sports is situated to the South, 'Look, Dad, there are goal post and nets!' is the usual comment. Why this is so unusual, I am not sure, but many aspiring David Beckham seem to have fun between the posts. This area also has a second children’s play area with swings and climbing frame.

Sally particularly specialise in the following areas of natural therapies and holistic treatments:
Hot Stone Massage
Therapeutic heat is slowly released into the belly of the muscle for a completely new body experience. Small warm stones are used to massage the body and then gently placed on key energy points, whilst luxuriously warmed oils are massaged deeply into the rest of the body for maximum relaxation.
Hot Stone Massage with Essential Oils
As above, but with beautiful essential oils to suit your mood and aid relaxation.
Reflexology works on the pressure points of the feet that represent the organs and energy channels of the body. Using gentle pressure point massage on these areas, tension and congestion are identified and eased, balancing body and mind and it leaving it in a total state of relaxation.
Indian Head Massage
The shoulders, neck and scalp are massaged to ease stress and tension creating a feeling of well-being and total relaxation.
Hopi Ear Candles
This deeply relaxing natural ancient treatment is a painless alternative to ear syringing. A must for people who suffer with ear and sinus conditions.
Back Neck Shoulder Massage
A relaxing massage concentrating on easing the tension from the back neck and shoulder area, a great treatment for those who sit at a desk all day.
This is a perfect starting point to creating a personalised, effective skincare regime, which is tailored just for you. After analysing your skin we will choose the combination of products to suit your skin’s needs. The treatment starts with a deep cleanse, a gentle exfoliation, a steam, a mask to suit your skin type and then a luxurious, relaxing neck, shoulder and facial massage using essential oils. A day cream is then applied to complete your treatment.
Our aromatherapy treatments will soothe the soul and comfort the body with their infinite gentleness. The treatment will relax, balance or energise depending on the aromachological fragrance chosen.
On the same principles as hand and foot reflexology, our face corresponds to different areas of our body.
