Mobile Service

O2 works well on site but if you use any other service provider then enjoy the break as there is very limited, if any at all, service via other networks.  However, please note free Wi-Fi is available in the cottages and The Gallery and even as far as the facilities block.  Remember you can always use your mobile regardless of service to make an emergency call.

Facilities

The Facilities Lodge houses a private bathroom for each yurt and a communal kitchen with additional cooking facilities.

The Gallery available, with Wi-Fi, indoor and outdoor games, books, loo, and laundry room.  All guests are welcome to use The Gallery but please note there may be the odd occasion when this has been hired, by guests, exclusively for an event.

We also have an outdoor bathroom, The Hidden Tubhouse, with two cast iron baths and a shower, cob pizza oven for hire, a communal fire pit, a treehouse with swings and slide, a small trampoline, badminton and outdoor table tennis.

Group Bookings

We allow group bookings but please ensure you let us know the group size/type at the time of booking!  There is a £150 surcharge for group bookings, please see our T&Cs of stay for further information.

Dogs

One well behaved dog is welcome in all accommodation except Bramley Yurt, charged at £25 per dog (a second dog is considered upon request for an additional fee of £25).  Please see our Terms and Conditions for further information.

We have some chickens free ranging around the place – they are very friendly but wary, so they shouldn’t bother you at all. If you bring your dog, then please be mindful of the chickens and remember to keep your dogs on a lead where necessary – thank you.

Wood Burners

Environmental Impact

Throughout the site we endeavour to minimise our impact on the environment by using a wind turbine electricity company, our own bore hole water source, bio-digesters for the treatment of waste water, and non-toxic cleaning products.  We also provide recycling for waste materials and compost bins for food waste.

Bees

We are a friend of the bees and have a secluded area in the wood with 4 hives.  This is their own peaceful sanctuary, so please respect their privacy as they are busy making delicious honey!

Chickens

We have some chickens free ranging around the place – they are very friendly but wary, so they shouldn’t bother you at all.  If you bring your dog, then please be mindful of the chickens and remember to keep your dogs on a lead where necessary – thank you.
