Arrival and Departure times
We look forward to seeing you at any time from 4pm onwards on the day of your arrival. Please do not arrive any earlier as the cottages will be not be ready for you. Departure time is by 10am.
We welcome one well behaved pet per property. Please be aware that for other pets, we charge an extra £20 per pet.
Free wifi is provided within all the properties but, as we are in a rural area, can be temperamental. We cannot guarantee its provision at all times but will endeavour to maintain it.
We are delighted to offer chargers for electric cars at Mill Hill and Peak Hall. They are 7kw chargers so work on an overnight charge, or better still during the day when they can be used in conjunction with our PV array, which can use our solar power units.
All bed linen is included with the booking and this includes a bath sheet and hand towel per guest. If you are staying longer than a week, we will happily refresh all linen and towels and give the property a mid stay clean.
