Time is precious and in 2017 I received life changing news that I had a rare form of breast cancer. Orchard House was the best home to retreat and recover in. It took me three years to recover then I made the decision to leave and move to a smaller home.

Our home is now your home. It's perfect to escape your day to day and celebrate life itself be it reconnecting with friends and family. The quirky layout which spans over three floors and large garden makes it ideal for generations to stay together yet still has an intimate feel to enjoy some private time. Drive through the secure farm gate into the walled garden which envelopes you with its privacy - I guarantee you will be revitalised before you leave. Play a game of pool or find a board game in the games room, make your barista-style coffee from Starbucks or Costa. Watch an old movie on one of two big screens or in the garden on the outdoor projector screen - I could go on. You only need to leave to go on one of the many local walks along the lush verdant fields and Billy Bank Woods that run close to the River Swale. Children can take the dinghy, fishing nets and in winter months the sledges!

The garden is magical - have a nap on the huge outdoor sofa, take a dip in our gorgeous new hot tub, share stories around the fire pit, look up at the starry skies and listen to the owl hooting. Stay and make your own traditions and memories - we still use the house for milestone events; last year I celebrated my 50th after party in the super kitchen/diner and held my son's 16th bbq with resident DJ in the garden!

Remember the apple doesn't fall from the tree - we trust you take some of the magical ingredients of the Orchard House lifestyle away with you...
Carpe Diem.
