Do we need to clean the lodge before we leave? 2017-04-20T15:11:16+00:00

Each lodge will be cleaned before it is made available to the next guest. However, we do ask that you leave your lodge in the same state of cleanliness and general order as you found it. That means, for example, ensuring that all rubbish is put in the bin for disposal and crockery is returned to the kitchen, clean and put away.

What happens if something gets damaged? 2017-04-20T15:10:44+00:00

We understand that a certain amount of wear and tear is inevitable and this applies to the odd smashed glass or broken plate.

However, if something does get damaged during your stay at the lodges do let us know ASAP so that it can be fixed or replaced. We do reserve the right to charge for more serious damages and breakages such as incidents to furniture, broken windows etc.

Are linens and towels supplied? 2017-04-20T15:08:56+00:00

All bed linen is supplied, but you will need to bring your own towels, and we recommend bath robes and flip flops for trips to the bathroom. Linens are not changed for guests staying for a short break, or 3 or 4 days. If you are staying with us for a week or more, your linens will be changed during the week.

Will I have the use of a telephone? 2017-04-20T15:08:20+00:00

The lodges do not have direct-dial telephones, and at the moment do not have wifi, in order to keep them as a peaceful retreat.

Do you cater for customers with restricted mobility? 2017-04-20T15:05:48+00:00

The lodges require a short walk from your car, and are on a gentle slope. We therefore do not recommend them for customers with restricted mobility.

Can I bring a dog? 2017-04-20T15:02:36+00:00

Yes! All of our lodges and surrounding grounds welcome dogs, but we ask that they are kept on leads when on site, and remain in crates, or your cars, if you need to leave them for a short while.
