Goodbye Site Shop

It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our site shop. We have loved our little micro shop and the convenience for our guests.

But with the prospect of one day turning the Gallery into another accommodation (although we are still waiting on a decision from the planners grr), it is time to let it go. Even if we don’t do the conversion immediately, the shop was only really viable during the summer season. Blame our accountant, he does the numbers, ha!

Anyway, now it is just the cottages, there is less of a need for those little extras. Ice will be provided in the cottages and you can always enquire if you like anything in the welcome pack.

I know some have found it so useful, but on the whole people do bring their own things – especially as the cost of living crisis hit, which we totally understand.

So there we go, I guess things change and this is one of those things.  Hopefully in time, it will be replaced by somewhere else for you all to stay and remember, there is always the farm shop and cafe, literally next door for those last minute bits. They really do have everything. Including wine and local ciders.

Aside from that, as I have mentioned before, everything else is still on offer; the fire pit, tubhouse, pizza oven, badminton, table tennis and yoga (if pre booked) and the games room. Found on our Things To Do page here at the #OR.

Plus, if you book both cottages together, we are really happy to provide exclusive camping for that special event. With up to three tents and the use of the facilities block – this option is available during the summer season. So still lots of fun to be had.

If you do book both cottages without the camping, we can also make the lodge kitchen available upon request. That said, the decking will be free for all to use during your stay. Makes for a lovely place to read a book, or have a drink. Use the big BBQ and play games. Perfect.

The orchard will still make a lovely space to spend time in and we are currently working on fun ideas for the old yurt bases.

Please do enquire if you would like to book the camping with your group booking.

We are looking forward to seeing some of you in 2024.

Lots of love Vicky, Nick and Maddy x
