The Grounds

At the end of a wonderful tree- lined drive you come across our ‘little patch of Paradise’!

Minarapa is set in about 11 acres of beautiful and tranquil park-like grounds which with their wide range of exotic and native trees and shrubs offer interest year round. Here you can wander at your leisure among the colourful tree- sheltered gardens featuring roses, rhododendrons, camellias and a wide variety of perennials, or choose many a secluded spot in which to sit and enjoy the birds’ chorus. Or you may venture no further than your balcony or our large terrace to relax, look out over the gardens or read.


The more actively inclined can stroll back down the drive past the stream to view our friendly sheep and cattle and contemplate our large pond with its waterlilies and bird life. Take your adventure a little further and experience our swing bridge over the pond. For even greater activity there is the grass tennis court (not Wimbledon!) and the use of tennis rackets and balls. For the children there is a playground, trampoline and spa pool!

No traffic noise, country ambiance, amazing starry skies - what better way to finish your day!
