The pool terrace is comfortably furnished with sun loungers and shady cream parasols. It’s a relaxing place to read a good book, nap after lunch or socialise with fellow guests. The convenient pool bar ensures a steady supply of drinks such as specialty brandy sours, beer, soft drinks and light refreshments.
