We do not allow guests to bring their own food and drink onto site. If you are renting the full house there will be a larder of basic food supplies for you to help yourself to, and we also offer Farmhouse Sharing Boards for lighter meals, or you can book a more formal dinner in advance if required.
Towels, Linen and Toiletries
We supply guests with towels, bathrobes and bed linen. Shampoo and soap is provided.
Rooms will be serviced between 12 noon–2pm.
We want our guests to enjoy the peace and quiet of the farm and consider the farmhouse a sanctuary from the outside world, therefore we do not have televisions in the bedrooms. We offer free WIFI although please be aware, due to our location, the signal can be weak and not suitable for streaming video.
Dining Room and Kitchen
Please note if you are booking with us on a B&B basis, the kitchen and dining room may not be available between 11am–4pm as there may be an event on.
Can we explore the farm and gardens?
Yes, you are very welcome to explore the farm but please note we are a working farm with livestock so close all gates behind you and don’t pick food from the gardens without one of our gardeners present.
Unfortunately, as the farmhouse is a listed building with a steep staircase to the bedrooms, it is not accessible for wheelchair users. If you have any accessibility requirements, please call our team to discuss.
