On arrival in the car park please park to the right over looking the church and text the above number to let us know you have arrived.
We operate self checkin for The Loft so do please read the following carefully and if you have any questions do let us know before your stay as it is possible we will not be onsite when you arrive.
Checkin is anytime from 4pm -10pm. We do not accept any checkins after 10pm, so please do arrange to collect your key earlier in the day if you have an event or other plans for the evening meaning you may arrive after this time. If you do arrive after 10pm The Loft will be locked and you will not be able to gain access until the following morning.
Once you have parked up please turn and face the main farmhouse. You will see a double gate that links it to a smaller building the same colours as the house this smaller building is our shower and toilet block and you will see signs on the smaller right hand building pointing you to the loft, yurts, showers and toilets.
To access the loft you need to follow the arrow to the loft and go through the double gates mentioned above. Cross the courtyard diagonally over to another single gate. On the way to this gate you will pass another door into the back of the shower and toilet block building on your right- this is our washing up area, where you can also access drinking water.
Go through the single gate. The door to The Loft is immediately on your left.
Should you have any trouble finding The Loft or aren’t sure then do give us a call on the above number.
The Loft now benefited from it’s own private hot tub (installed 22nd September 2021). To access your hot tub please turn left upon exiting The Loft and follow the fence around until you reach a gate.
Unlatch the gate and your hot tub is behind the fenced area. You are free to use this hot tub anytime during our hot tub hours which are 7am-11pm but we would remind you that quiet hours begin at 10pm and so we ask that you respect this if using the hot tub after 10pm; no music etc.
Please familiarise yourself with our other hot tub rules before using the hot tub by clicking here
You may see us checking your hot tub at various point throughout your stay, this is just to ensure the balance of chemicals is correct to keep your hot tub hygienic.
The Loft has it’s own private bathroom located within the building that nobody else has access to during your stay
We will continue to provide our lovely Neals Yard Toiletries in each bathroom, and the outside of these will have been thoroughly disinfected before your arrival. We have chosen to use the larger bottles and re-fill them rather than to provide throw away small bottles in order to reduce the amount of plastic waste we create (plus they look really pretty in the blue bottles)
Please do leave these at the end of your stay. They are available to purchase if you wish to take some with you.
You will find a selection of pots, pans and utensils in the Loft. Please ensure all pots, pans, plates etc are washed up and put away at the end of your stay. The Loft benefits from a full sized oven/grill and a two ring plug in electric indiction hob which can be found in the bottom drawer under the4 sink. We have opted for this style of hob instead of a fixed worktop hob in order to create more worktop space in The Loft.
Please note there is no table and chairs in The Loft, but we do provide lap trays for cosy breakfast in bed or watching a film in bed.
You can also use our communal BBQ hut. we do not provide charcoal as part of your stay but we do sell it onsite.
It is also very important that you use the cleaning equipment provided and thoroughly wipe down after yourself when using the communal areas. Please leave areas as you would wish to find them.

A reminder that quiet hours are between 10pm and 7am and we will pop round and gently remind you if noise levels are deemed excessive enough to disrupt other guests. We know and understand that it is easy to be louder than you realise, especially when catching up with friends and enjoying a drink, so we ask that you please be considerate of other guests.
We politely ask that you do not smoke in The Loft or in communal areas (including the hot tub) any signs of smoking will be charged for at the end of your stay. There must be no glass bought into the hot tub area for safety reasons, this includes bottles, glasses or any other kind of glass. We provide you with plastic glasses so that you may take drinks into the hot tub area. You will find a list of hot tub rules by the hot tub, please read these before using, as misuse may result in charges. Please note that The Loft is connected to the main house (by two locked doors) which means that we can smell smoking from the house be it cigarettes or otherwise.
Checkout is strictly no later than 10am on your day of departure and we ask that you leave The Loft clean and tidy with all rubbish placed in the bins by the cooking cabin and all washing up done and returned to your yurt. We do not require you to strip the beds but it does help us immensely if you do. Please leave all windows and doors open if it is not raining or likely to rain to help air the Loft for COVID purposes, and leave your key in the door.
A late checkout may be pre-arranged. This option is £25 and would give you a checkout time of 12pm.
