Living Spaces

Not just one but two gorgeous sitting rooms to enjoy!

Leading just off the main entrance hall, the formal lounge has dual aspect with views over the front and and side lawned gardens. The bay window floods the room with light, whilst the log fire provide warmth and a focal point with comfy sofas to sink into. A perfect place to relax, unwind and put your feet up.

With rich oak boarded floors throughout, you pass through the dining room into the second sitting room to the rear. A rich velvety d├ęcor and plenty of comfortable seating, this is another great social space with another log burner.

Gardens and Outdoor Space

You can certainly embrace the great outdoors without even setting a foot off the premises. The gardens at Dale House provide a natural playground for all. As the house sits proudly in the middle of the grounds, you can enjoy the gardens which sweep round the property on three sides.

The front garden stretches out before the entrance with a large flagged patio which benefits from the mid morning to late afternoon sun. There are plenty of shrubs and well established trees to make an excellent place for the younger guests to play hide and seek!

To the side, a simple long flat lawned garden lends itself to garden games. To the rear, a totally private raised lawned garden with a sizeable patio to enjoy outdoor dining. We provide garden furniture and a large charcoal BBQ (please remember to bring your own charcoal) so you can eat and drink whilst enjoying some fresh country air.
