play barn

A child's paradise whilst still being a place for adults to unwind.

Bonne Chere's child friendly holiday cottages benefit from very generous surroundings allowing us to provide your children with safe and entertaining play areas. Children can play safely in the grounds with plenty of space available to run about, play football, badminton or play hide & seek within the forest.

The gardens immediately surrounding the properties cover approximately 4 acres with a mixture of lawns, colourful flowerbeds, shrubs and trees. They provide a great place for children to play and all guests are welcome to explore every corner. The property's elevated position makes it a natural suntrap but within our large gardens you will find plenty of tree shaded places to keep children out of the hot mid-day sun.

Shared between the properties is the on-site heated swimming pool, fenced for safety and decked for comfort. The pool has a constant depth which is very popular with young families. There is ample sun terracing surrounding our pool with plenty of seating and sun beds for you to use. Come and bask in the sun or simply sit back, relax and enjoy reading your favorite book.

There is plenty to keep the children occupied, they will love exploring our own private forest or playing in our children's play areas. Picnic benches have been provided in both sunny and shaded spots in the garden so guests can enjoy sunny breakfast times whilst later seeking shade for afternoon aperitifs.
