    Still not sure if we can be of help? Check through some frequently asked questions and then send us a message.

    Yes we do. In the past we have looked after various wedding parties, including the brides party. The walled garden with its roses and fruit trees make for a stunning backdrop for photos, as well as the stream and rolling hills!

    Of course! We have to be mindful of other guests that will be staying in the cottage, so we ask that you keep your dog on the ground floor and off the furniture. Normal dog etiquette in the gardens please!

    Yes, plenty of parking all on private land, so you don’t have to worry about your car. Son Charlie says he will be happy to clean your car for a very reasonable fee!

    3 days minimum stay please, you can’t get away from us that easily!

    We’ve tried to offer a reasonable price for the hire of the Stables holiday cottage. However, if you want to stay with us for more than one week (7 days), I am sure we can offer some discount.

    Not generally, but please ask and I am sure we can accommodate you. We do offer a very good packed lunch though. Please ask us for details or send us your dietary requirements and we’ll be in touch.
