  • Hi, Is it the whole house that is for the holiday rental or is it shared with other people?
    Hello, The one bedroom self catering anex is private and not shared with other people. It is located just over the farm drive next to our house. Hope this helps. Best wishes, Philippa

  • Would you like payment by card or cash when we leave? Thank you. I'm only asking because the last B&B asked me for cash the day before we left and there wasn't a cash machine for miles and then I had a limit on withdrawal, so it caused a bit of a headache. Thanks Julian Coates
    Hi Julian, we take payment from your credit or debit card on arrival if that's OK. We look forward to welcoming you on Monday, Best wishes, Philippa

  • Hi there, I am hoping to book a stay with you guys in the next month or so, but wondered if there was an additional charge if I'm bringing my dogs with me? Also, is the surrounding areas on for walking dogs off lead? Thanks
    Hi, We do charge for dogs, £10 each (maximum of 2) for their stay. There is usually an empty field dogs can run in away from the farm animals and poultry. The ground has plenty of rabbits which may be a consideration if your dog takes off in chase?
