Detailed below are a few of the most frequently asked questions which may be helpful to you. Please feel free to contact us directly if we can help you any further.

Are children allowed in the cottage gardens?

We welcome children into our gardens if accompanied by an adult as we have two fish ponds and so for their own safety would not wish to risk any accidents. I’m afraid we don’t allow any ball games in the garden in consideration of our other guests however we do have Giant Jenga, Croquet and Boules for a bit of fun on the lawn.

What are the Check in & check out times?

We would be delighted to welcome you any time between 4pm – 7pm.  If you think you may be arriving outside of these hours please let us know in advance so that we can accommodate you and ensure an easy check in.

We ask that you vacate your bedroom on the morning of your departure by 11am please.

Do you allow dogs?

Well behaved dogs are welcome to stay with you in the Coach House for an additional fee of £15 per dog per night to cover our deep clean charges.  We can provide a dog bed if you need one.

Do you have a car park?

Yes, we have ample parking spaces on our private driveway to serve the two bedrooms. A second parking space may be available by prior arrangement, alternatively further car parking is also available in front of the public house next door.

Yes we do. We have a charging point on our drive for our guests to use free of charge.

Do you have WiFi?

Yes free WiFi is available for our guests in their bedrooms and in the breakfast room/tea room but please understand that we are in the countryside and so our WiFi strength is a bit relaxed and not up to the superfast speeds found in busy city and town centres!

What do we do if we need to contact you in an emergency during our stay?

We will provide you with emergency contact details at the time of check in.
