We have an amazing outdoor area, which is half under cover and is enjoyed by our children all year round.  The children take part in growing their own fruit & vegetables and we have recently purchased a 'Mud Kitchen', which the children love.  Our outside space is very important to us.

You are very welcome to come for a visit.
