Breath in the clean air, against the back drop of tweeting birds and the faint ebbing and flowing of the surf, whilst enjoying many outdoor facilities designed to entertain, stimulate and hopefully tire out your excited children, without even leaving Broomhill Manor’s extensive grounds!
Play areas – trampoline, climbing frames, swings, slide, sand pit, Wendy houses
Heated Outdoor Pool – open from May half term to September
Archery – takes place weekly in the summer months on the front lawn with qualified instructor
Pony and horse rides – horsy fun each day and Friday gymkhana in school holiday weeks
Tennis – outdoor hard court available with use of racquets and balls
Ball games – lots of space to play cricket, football or rounders on the front lawn
Extensive gardens – relax or wander around the beautifully maintained ornamental gardens and fish ponds
Children love to explore the various play areas here! There’s a wooden fort, with tower, tunnel, climbing net and a second fort with swings, a lookout tower, slide and climbing ropes. There is also a trampoline (good for the grown-ups too!) and a wooden play house. There is a sandpit and Wendy house which the children adore and plenty of room for ball games on the vast front lawn.
Heated Outdoor Pool
Set within a walled terrace, the heated outdoor pool is often a sun trap – a great place to relax on a sun lounger with a good book and enjoy the rays! The outdoor pool is open during the summer months (normally from May half term until September).
Pony and Horse Rides
And then of course there are the horses suitable for all ages and abilities – from ponies for toddlers through to something much larger for mum or dad to have a go, too! Our Shetland ponies, Susie and Missy are firm favourites with the little ones!
Gardens and Grounds
Broomhill Manor cottages are set in an idyllic and peaceful location within acres of beautifully maintained gardens (thanks to the dedication and hard work of Jen and Liz – not forgetting Simon’s regular use of the ride-on and his demon strimmer!) Each year over 100 hanging baskets are planted out to adorn the cottages with their spectacular display of colour and fragrant scents. The grounds are also shared by a wide variety of wild life – you might be lucky enough to spot the odd kingfisher, badger, red deer and of course the many birds, squirrels and rabbits that regard Broomhill Manor as their home!
