We have now finally completed the cottage and are taking bookings. Our firsts guests enjoyed their stay so much they sent their friends up 2 days later!

A dog walk is to be constructed in the wooded area behind the cottage, when we have livestock in the surrounding fields, you will still be able to let your dog stretch its legs off the lead here.

Pets

We are happy to accommodate one well behaved dog with each booking (or speak to us about multiples), provided they don’t  need to sleep on the furniture!. Please do not leave them unattended in the cottage but use the dog accomodation in the shed if necessary.
We can provide grazing in a securely fenced field directly behind the cottage if you would like to bring your own horse.  Or stabling nearby at South Slipperfield farm, (10min walk).
Dogs and horses incurr an extra charge, please see pricing page.

Parking and Access

Parking is limited to 3 cars.  Access is up a farm track (old drove road) which is obviously not tarmacked.  May not be ideal for very low cars, but quite satisfactory for the average family car.  Access through 3 farm gates, useful to have a passenger on board!
