In the warmer months return from the beach and shelter from the heat in the protection of the cool stone walls. When the weather turns cooler, put your feet up in front of the open fire, listen to the wind whistle off the Southern Ocean through the Norfolk pines and imagine how the Bowyer family lived in these rooms 150 years ago.
