You will be text access codes the day before your arrival. Our changeover days are Mondays and Fridays. On the day of arrival the lodge will be available from 4pm and on the day of departure we ask that you vacate the lodge by 10am. This allows us to thoroughly clean, disinfect and replenish linens, drop, clean and refill hot tubs and carry out any maintenance before the arrival of the next guests. You will receive a check out form which we require with key drop off.

GROCERY DELIVERIES 

Supermarket deliveries are welcomed, please let us know in advance day and scheduled time as we monitor unauthororised vehicles. Please note your lodge name and the site address for delivery.  Ensure delivery is booked for a time when you expect to be available in the lodge to receive it!  If staff are around on site when deliveries arrive they will of course give drivers barrier access and point them in the right direction, however please make sure your mobile contact is available for the driver to call you on arrival to gain site access - you can give them barrier code to drive to lodge.

GROUPS

Unfortunately, we do not take Stag and Hen Party groups. Our accommodation is aimed at families, couples and small groups of friends. Please note, we don't offer any communal areas where guests staying in different lodges can socialise and gather. Lodges are not set up to accommodate multiples guests/ parties etc and we want to maintain a peaceful setting for all guests.  Therefore, we may not accept multiple lodge bookings depending on the purpose of your visit. If a multiple lodge booking is accepted, we please ask that no furniture or kitchenware etc is moved from one lodge to another – this makes it difficult for checking cleaning inventory and adds time to our changeover process. Please contact us to enquire. 

PLEASE BEAR IN MIND

As we are set in the countryside surrounded by working farmland and rural activity, please consider your lodge experience may come with authentic countryside background (including both noises and smells!) which is out of our control. Throughout the months of October - January there are local shoots which take place twice a week in surrounding farmland. We always try to warn our guests of scheduled shoots so they can choose to vacate the lodge or choose not to watch. This disturbance is usually no longer than an hour. We apologise for this inconvenience.

Bed Linen, towels and Spa robes will be provided. We ask that you bring your own bedding for infants staying in  cots.
