There is a designated parking area on site to the right of the bungalow.  Vehicles may stop to unload on either the ramp access to the cabins nearest to the bungalow (cabins 3 & 4 / Deer & Squirrel) or at the far end lay-by access for (cabins 1 & 2 / Pheasant & Owl) then park in the car park to the right of the bungalow aligned with the hedge or as directed. (Please note: One vehicle per cabin only)


There is absolutely no smoking permitted either in the cabins or on site.  The only place we will permit smoking is at the bottom end of the paddock out of the gate.  Please ensure you put all cigarette butts in the bin provided which is attached to the fence just inside the gate.  Your co-operation is much appreciated.  

Camp Fires / BBQ’s

Camp fires and guest’s own BBQ’s are not permitted on site.

Gas BBQ’s and fire pits with the appropriate fuel may be hired and must be used in the designated areas.  We reserve the right to cancel these if adverse weather conditions prevail.


Well behaved dogs are welcome (maximum of two) but MUST be kept on a lead and under control at all times whilst on site.  Dogs are the owner’s responsibility and must not be left unattended in the cabin at any time.  A dog waste disposal bin and scoops are provided for all dog waste.  (In the best interest of safety for children and other guests on site and as we have our own pets / free range poultry; it is imperative that the above rules are strictly adhered too.  Any breach of these rules may lead to a request to leave the site with no refund of fees).  If we experience flouting of these rules which results in the need for us to be clearing the site of dog waste then we may have no alternative but to impose a charge for dogs or potentially exclude dogs from the site altogether which we do not wish to do.
