Outside you have a wooden decked area with a table and chairs, there is a fire pit where you can toast marshmallows whilst enjoying the dark skies and beyond is the orchard where you can enjoy produce from the mature fruit trees and eggs from the free-roaming hens - the fruit trees have pretty solar lights that light up when the sun goes down.
