We ask that guests are conscious of their use of power, particularly when daylight hours are reduced and remember to switch lights off. If mains charging is essential we can facilitate this in our accommodation on the farm. We provide washing up liquid, hand soap, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner – all of these products are biodegradable, and we encourage their use due to our wastewater handling.
During the summer and when dry, vehicles are parked a short walk from the hut. During the winter months cars are parked in our farm buildings which is a 10 minute walk to the hut. On your arrival and departure we will drop off and collect you and your bags, any additional items during your stay will be your own responsibility. When wet, wellies or appropriate outdoor footwear and clothing is required to get to and from the hut.
You will be sharing the woodland with a range of wildlife with foxes and deer frequently moving through the area and therefore do not accept dogs. Mallard ducks and moorhens raise their young on the pond through the summer months. The woodland is filled with elderflower, wild raspberries and blackberries during spring and summer.
