Something you can add to your booking
Vouchers for local businesses
We have negotiated some special discounts for our guests at local businesses!
We have so many different species of birds from buzzards and sparrow hawks to robins and goldfinches. Spring sees an invasion of swallows and starlings as they nest in the surrounding out buildings. A few cheeky foxes can sometimes be spotted or maybe even a deer or two, pheasants live here in peace safe from any of the surrounding shoots.
We supply each cottage with a pair of binoculars and a wildlife book so you can enjoy a bit of wildlife spotting from your cottage
Relax in the comfort of our wonderful cottages
All our cottages are heated by ground source heat pumps, we installed our first in 2009 and have continued to use them as we have developed more cottages. We now have 4 – all from the only UK manufacturer of heat pumps.
These heat pumps take heat from under the fields surrounding the cottages and ensure that all the cottages are cosy for your stay, all the cottages have full central heating most of it is underfloor but a few rooms in the Forge and Stables use radiators.
You don’t really need to use the log burners but it is sometimes nice to settle down in front of a roaring fire. All your heating is included in the price you pay including logs for the fire (sustainably sourced from local managed woodlands) and if you need more logs there is a big pile in the recycling area so just help yourself!
Ground source heat pumps use some electricity so we have installed our own on site electricity generation – tucked away on one of the barns a large array of solar PV panels, we use over 95% of everything we generate.
Want to go out without the dog?
We can sometimes provide a dog sitter, ideal if you want to pop out for few hours without the dog, just ask Elaine. Another option is to use the external kennel that is available for guests to use free of charge.
There are lots of lovely walks around and if the paddock by the entrance has the gate open it means that we have no livestick in there and you are free to run your dog ini there.
Why eat out when you can eat in!
You can have a private chef cook for you in the cottages or order food in from locl caterers, even the Michelin starred Pipe and Glass offers a range of take out foods for dining at home.
Some of the cottages have large dining tables and we also have some extra fold up tables and extra chairs so you can all dine together. There are also large outdoor dining tables in some of the cottages, just ask for details
