Outside the Farmhouse at Delettes
** Relaxation ** Tranquillity ** Comfort ** Fun **
The Huge Courtyard - surrounded by The Farmhouse and other buildings is a sun trap with its own micro-climate. It is completely shut off from the outside world by two enormous lockable wooden gates and is totally private. A large planter shields the terrace area and there is enough room for younger children to zoom around on the ride-on toys (or bikes if they bring them) and not disturb the adults' more peaceful pursuits such as sitting and enjoying the sun with a drink. With the outside gates locked, the courtyard and garden provide a secure play area.
The Largest Barn opening off the courtyard has a full-sized trampoline and a children's swing set and climbing frame on a bark base. The rest of the barn has a concrete floor where we have marked out a badminton court under the barn lights. There is a selection of ride-on toys for younger children and two goal posts with nets for use in the barn or the garden. The other Barn leads from the courtyard into the garden and has an indoor shed which holds garden chairs, bats and balls, extra badminton nets and lots of garden games, and extra tables and chairs if needed. There are 2 small and one large barbecue for use in garden or courtyard.
The Swimming Pool is surrounded by a high wall and screen and has a locked door for security. The pool is 10 x 5.2 metres and is kept clean by a salt-based electrolysis system. The pool area catches the sun all day long and is a sheltered sun trap with an ample sitting area. It is heated by air through a heat exchanger and solar cover and is normally about 28 degrees. There is a hot water shower and changing room opening off the pool area. The pool is normally available May to mid-October but opening and closing dates will depend on the weather at each end of the season.
The Garden has a terrace with a table and benches and a lawn which is large enough for a game of cricket or five-a-side football. There is a large weeping willow tree at one end which provides a wonderfully shaded tranquil place to sit under, especially in the swing seat.
