Pickwell Manor offers endless opportunities for exploration and discovery without ever having to leave the grounds. For the children it’s a chance to live like real Swallows and Amazons (although a little more civilised). We have even been named the best alternative to Centre Parcs by The Guardian and our laundry room features in the Wall Street Journal's Year In Photos 2014. Well, it is a stunning view!

Throughout the summer holidays we offer a weekly cream tea to our guests as well as a craft session. And did we mention the beach? Well, it’s just a brisk walk through the fields, or five minutes by car.

On a practical note, there is a laundry room, wetsuit rinsing, and surf and bike store.
