Frequently Asked Questions

  • Important details about my stay?
    We have a 2 night minimum stay, although we welcome longer stays. Standard Arrival from 4pm, departure by 10am.However, depending on bookings we are usually able to offer earlier check in and later check out. We will inform you a few days before arrival if we are able to extend these times. Guests are not able to park directly outside their accommodation. This is to maintain the rural appearance of the site and to preserve the biodiversity. Dedicated, lit parking area a short walk from the units. We operate a no smoking policy, both inside the accommodation and outside. We ask guests to respect this. Sorry, we do not accept guest dogs, due to the close proximity of farm livestock. There is no WiFi on site (we encourage guests to ‘disconnect to reconnect’), although there is phone signal for most providers.
  • Do guests need to bring anything?
    Beds have hotel quality duvets/pillows and are made up with low allergy bedding. Towels are provided in the bathroom, along with eco friendly hand wash and shower gel. The kitchen is fully equipped with utensils, crockery, glassware and pans. Tea towels and washing up liquid are provided. You will find tea, coffee, sugar, milk, salt/pepper and oil waiting for you. Everything for the log burner/BBQ is provided within the cost – just bring your food! Extra logs can be purchased for £5 if required. There is also a torch and first aid kit should you need them. If there is anything else we have forgotten, please feel free to ask.
  • How sustainable / environmentally friendly are you?
    Living and working in a beautiful rural area we take our responsibilities seriously. During the build we employed local tradesmen and used local, reclaimed or recycled materials where possible. Electricity is generated by solar panels on the farm and supplied to the units when available. We have planted over 300 native hedging plants and a wildflower meadow. A long forgotten vegetable patch and orchard have been reinstated to provide ‘pick your own’ fruit and vegetables for guests. The hens in the orchard supply eggs for the breakfast hampers. We only use eco friendly cleaning products and toiletries which are supplied in refillable glass bottles by our local plastic free shop. Why not leave your car on site and use pedal power to visit the local area or village pub, using our onsite bikes free of charge.
