The Lapa (pronounced ‘larpa’) is a South African thatched structure (Zulu influences)

It is a new addition to the garden and is designed for outdoor dining etc

We have added lighting and music speakers, and sides can be attached in colder weather

The Lapa is situate in the area which contains our ‘curios’ (Post Box, Telephone Box, Clothes mangles etc) and in an area being developed as a Fuchsia garden
