Additional rules

A maximum of 2 well behaved dogs allowed. Pets should not be allowed in the bedrooms or on the furniture, or be left unsupervised in the property. Guests are responsible for cleaning up any fouling which their pets may cause around the property, in the fields (where children may play or on the road or paths – if this is not appropriately dealt with additional cleaning charges may be applied. Hot tub guidance must be followed. Please ensure any makeup or artificial skin colouring is thoroughly removed if using the hot tub, as it can discolour the water and result in having to drain the tub down during your stay. No candles or naked flames to be used in the lodge please.

Please note that we do a thorough deep clean and sanitisation of the lodge before the arrival of each guest using a fogging machine which is effective against enveloped viruses. As this takes a little more time to complete we ask that all guests vacate the premises no later than 10:00 am on the date of departure.
