The lounge and the dining/family rooms are on the upper level of the house. They are warm and sunny with a light, airy feel because of the amount of glass used in their design.


In the evening we often enjoy conversations with guests over cups of tea or coffee. We like looking at photos, maps and souvenir booklets. It's a great way to round off the day before preparing for peaceful sleep. The lounge is a quiet place for relaxing, or catching up with your own affairs.

Dining/family room

Guests enjoy their breakfast in a sunny dining room. Whether you prefer a continental meal of cereal, toast and fruit, or something cooked, Katrine will make a breakfast that is nourishing and enjoyable - including orange juice, tea, fresh coffee, a selection of cereals, fruit, bacon, eggs cooked in various ways and tomato. There is also Katrine's home-made muesli and yoghurt, and Graham's fresh home-made bread.

People with special dietary needs or food preferences are catered for.

A drink of tea, coffee or juice on arrival, and morning and afternoon teas are complimentary. These are good times to become acquainted and exchange travel experiences, Guests can sit on the sundeck on fine days.
