The hall’s large, magnificent wooden doors open up to a level space for outdoor activities, leading down to a magical creek (home to turtles and platypus) and an outdoor fire pit.

Lounge & dining

Gunnebah’s lounge and dining area is it’s ‘community’ hub. Built well away from the hall and accommodation, to create a separate social space, it is perfect for chatting, listening to music, games, reading and dining. Built from mud bricks, with exquisite stained glass it holds great charm and character

There are a number of outdoor eating areas, providing diners with relaxed, natural environments overlooking the garden in which to enjoy their meals or cup of tea. Dining areas include all year round ‘indoor/outdoor’ enclosed and weather proof dining areas, as well as outdoor café style table and chairs.
