Guests at the complex can enjoy the use of a heated indoor swimming pool and a children’s play centre as well as the unspoilt gardens and grounds which stretch to over four acres. 

Selling agent Humberts said: “This complex offers an ideal opportunity for an owner occupier looking for a lifestyle change, or an investor looking for a business opportunity.”
