An open-air space to gather after dark, our Fire Pit is an inspiring spot to swap stories under the stars and reflect on the day's adventures. Providing a calm, trance-like atmosphere, evenings beside the fire round off busy days on a peaceful note and offer a relaxed setting to share ideas, dreams and laughter.
