Once again we are having to close-up due to Covid lockdown. All our guests who have booked directly for the affected period have been contacted and have rearranged or been refunded. Those who booked by Sykes the process is ongoing.
Time for some more maintenance I guess – hopefully see you soon
To may your stay with us more relaxed we have added a small paddock area that is (relatively) dog safe – so you can let you pooch have a run around without fear of losing them or them becoming overly interested in our other animals (donkeys or chickens).
We have also added a small seating area for your enjoyment in this same paddock which will catch the sun until the late evening (when available!!)
We are also adding a small picket fence around Boskins to allow you to enjoy the outside without interference from our dogs – or keeping your in more secure area. – obviously you can choose to leave the gate open if you enjoy the visits from our resident hounds.
We have re-opened following the Covid19 lockdown restrictions with additional cleaning measures and distancing in place.
Cottages now come with sanitizer etc and all linens etc are changed between guests (as they were before to be honest!) – as well as a full clean and an additional antiviral ‘fog’ spray to reduce risk of any viral transmission.
The additional measures mean we have drafted in addition support to help with cleaning and extended our check in time until 1600 to give us time to ensure the properties are fully prepared and not rushed.
Thanks for you patience and understanding at this time.
Our hedge row to the road has been left untended for a long time, David Hindson and his team have made a great job of laying the hedge professionally in March, and have left me with a lot of firewood and tidying up to complete (as agreed).
It is with regret that we have had to suspend our holiday cottages in line with government guidelines. We understand this is a disappointment for many, especially those who new they could ‘isolate’ in the cottages often better than at home.
We have been working with all our guests to re-book and move the holidays / short breaks as best we can. Those who have booked via Sykes need to go online or contact Sykes to make the necessary changes – everyone else we will do our best to accommodate you and will be open again as soon as we are allowed – we are losing money as well as disappointing you 🙁
As for us .. lock down is easier for when we have our own fields and animals to take care of without leaving the property and plenty of jobs to do, so we are in a far better position than most!
