The best way to explore the estate is allow oneself to get soaked in the natural beauty. An early morning leisure walk around the 100 acres of the lush greenery is surely an experience to die for. Birds such as wild fowls, peacocks, wild ducks, swans and Turkeys are a delight for all the birdwatchers. One can occasionally sight the Red Squirrels and Porcupines scurrying around the paths. For those who are hooked to fishing, the four fishing ponds offer quite a relaxing venture. Adding to the charm, there is a small lake tucked among the greenery too.
