Grounds

Within Haulfryn House gardens are a hard tennis court, croquet lawn and badminton net. Barbecue equipment is available for guest use, either on the sun patio, in the South Gardens, or the village side gardens. The gardens themselves are a delight to wander through, with many a secluded spot for contemplation, or perfect for hide and seek for the children. Please view our garden photo galleries to get a true feel for their nature and extent (link).
