Description of Clocktower ApartmentsOffering accommodation for smaller families or couples, these quirky and unusual apartments sit at the centre of Clippesby Hall’s family holiday park, converted from the old stable block. Looking out over the lawns of the old walled garden, each apartment has its own private decked balcony, ideal for enjoying the wonderful sunsets and awe inspiring night skies, or an afternoon in the sun with a good book.
