You can’t help but fall in love with the Yard, but it’s what’s going on that brings the place alive - Yard Life is that rich tapestry! You can get fit, chill out, try water sports, shop for great produce or watch a great film.  All this with the ever changing backdrop of the Sea - it can be fast or slow, it’s all Yard Life.
