Larger groups of up to 10, could also be easily accommodated by booking Orchard Cottage, which sleeps 4, as well.
Dogs are welcome but please note that, as we are surrounded by fields occupied by mares and foals, they must remain on leads at all times when in the grounds. The cottage garden is secure, so it is fine for dogs to roam at will there.
Please be assured that we are following the guidelines re cleaning and sanitising and all surfaces will have been disinfected. Weather permitting the cottage will also have been aired for at least three hours before your arrival.
