What we do and don’t provide:

This is a self-catering accommodation so there are certain things we do and don’t provide. Here are a few points but if there is anything else you’re unsure of please feel free to contact us directly.

✓We will provide linen for your stay – the beds will be made up and ready for you to jump in to!  Towel packs are provided in the guest rooms and can be provided at a £4 supplement in the lodges.  Please let Alastair and Sue know if you have booked a lodge and would like towels as these need to be booked in advance.  Payment can be made on arrival.

✓A high chair and travel cot are available on request and are subject to availability; please let Alastair and Sue know if you require these ahead of your stay so that we can make sure these are available to you.

✓ Chances are you are keen to have a break from doing the washing, but there is a drying room with washing machine and drying rack which are available for you to use, should you wish to!

 ✓A BBQ area and outside furniture are available to use.

✓We will provide you with loo roll and some basic cleaning supplies.

✓There is a TV and DVD player in your room / lodge.  You may wish to bring some DVDs to enjoy during your stay.

✓Site-wide WiFi is included in your stay.



We welcome your well behaved furry friends with prior notice, but we kindly ask you to treat the lodges and rooms as you would you own home and dry soggy dogs at the door before allowing them inside. Dogs are not permitted on any of the furniture. This enables us to make sure our pet friendly lodges and rooms are in excellent condition for our next guests.

We also ask you to clean up after your pets in all exterior areas and hoover their hair up at the end of your stay.


At the end of your stay:

We would be very grateful if you could switch off any lights and electrical items, wash any dishes, strip any used beds and give the lodge / guest room a general tidy.  As a matter of courtesy, we would expect the lodge / room to be left in the same condition as you found it in, to enable a quick turn-around to have everything ready for our next guests.


 Have a lovely stay!
