@ Sugarhill Manor – Adventure Boulle on a 9 hole course. Great fun, or
meander along the windy paths to explore the magnificent gardens and adjacent forest with its rich bird life, or, just relax in a hammock, daybed, swing or one of our ‘chill spots’ before indulging in a Long Lazy Lunch at the Prawn Shak before wiling away the evening around the bonfire telling tall stories
