Watch the sunset from the warmth and privacy of your hot tub. Walk to the swing to see the pond, the ducks, the sheep and the sky, in clean air. Rinse your muddy wellies in the stream. Lunch with the newspaper in the Lamb Inn Sandford, lunch with the Beer engine at Newton St Cyres, dine Italian at Belluno Newton St Cyres.
