Our orchard further down has over thirty fruit trees. Feast on bright, red apples, cherries, juicy plums & pears when in season. Find that perfect, quiet spot to read under one of the many trees. The lawn alongside the orchard is the perfect spot for a friendly footie match or string up the badminton net between the trees for a friendly game. The veggie patch is a new project at Maison Metcalf and turned out a good crop in its first year. Cook a wonderful meal for your family with fresh produce pulled from the soil by your hand. Gorgeous courgettes, cool cucumbers and ripe, red tomatoes. Previous young guests have thoroughly enjoyed munching away at cherry tomatoes whilst the picking goes on. Once the "harvesting" is done it is off to feed Rosalie, the goat.
And if all the above mentioned land is still not enough...we have more! Beyond the pool, the garden, the orchard and the lower lawn area is open field. Three acres of it; where the energetic and somewhat adventurous can run wild and climb the bales of hay if they are still out. You may spot Rosy wondering about or our friendly farmer's sheep and horses. Remember to check for eggs at the chicken coop when passing by!
At Maison Metcalf there is a special corner for everyone on the four acre grounds. We encourage you to explore it all and to find your perfect spot to recharge the batteries
The large, sparkling pool is for your sole enjoyment and has a security fence with latched gate. It measures 10m x 5m with wide, Roman steps for easy access. The depth at the shallow end is just under a meter and the deep end is 1.4m. The surrounding patio has numerous sun loungers, deck chairs and umbrellas. An array of inflatable pool toys are available to provide many hours of fun. Pool towels are provided. The under cover dining area just off the kitchen makes dining al fresco easy and having an unobstructed view to the pool means the barbecue can be fired up while a watchful eye is kept on the kids in the pool. An extra bonus: every morning we ensure the pool is perfectly clean and debris-free for you to enjoy!
Set in a one acre garden with flat lawned area, pool, orchard, veggie patch, goats and chickens, and a further three acres of open field, Maison Metcalf has all the outside space required in which to unwind and relax. Kids run free here while parents take in the country air. Of the utmost importance to us is the security and safety of our younger guests and the peace of mind of their parents. Access from the fenced garden to the parking area, and to the country lane, is through a latched garden gate.
