Relax and immerse yourself in nature
Grounds; 30 acres of lawns, woodland a meadow and a stream to explore
As well as the heated pool there are acres of lawns on which to relax and on a hot summer’s day the plethora of broadleaved trees provide cooler shaded areas giving respite from the intense sun. Couetilliec Cottages’ grounds provide a tremendous sense of space; plenty of room for everybody. The grounds cater for leisure activities including; photography, painting/drawing, walking, nature watching or just sitting back and listening to birdsong with or without a good book and glass of wine. With zero light pollution a spot of stargazing on a clear night is a must.
Couetilliec Cottages are ideal if you like an abundance of fauna and flora. We have seen deer, badgers, red squirrels, pine martins, foxes, buzzards, owls and woodpeckers. There are many veteran pollarded oak trees most are smothered in an array of mosses, lichens and ferns.
Interests for the little ones
Acres of lawns on which to play, run and tumble. A slide, seesaw and swing set. Den building, playing and imaginations running wild in the woodland are favourites; we’ve seen children roll a large log downhill and then work as an effective team and returned it to its original position. Our ravenous rooting permaculture pig, Choupette, and the chickens are a big hit with children.
