Perfect for parents who would like to slip off for a few hours of indulgence at the spa, a round of golf or a romantic meal, we offer a crèche service during school holidays and babysitting services in the evening.

Anouska’s Creche


Our fantastic, friendly new crèche opens its doors in April for your little ones aged two to nine years old. You’ll have the peace of mind of knowing your children are being cared for in an OFSTED registered crèche run by Old MacDonald’s, a renowned local provider. So you can relax and enjoy a few hours of well-deserved time to yourself.

It’s located in a quiet, pretty spot behind the Walled Garden, close to our facilities for children and families.
