We allow up to two pets per unit although if you have more than this please call or email to discuss as we will always do our best to accommodate wherever possible. We do have chickens roaming free so we ask that any dogs who may be inclined to chase feathery things, be kept on a lead. Pets must not be left unattended in any accommodation. There is a small additional charge per pet.

WHAT ABOUT GROUP BOOKINGS AND PARTIES?
We welcome group bookings and often hire the entire site out for events like weddings and birthday parties however you will need written permission from us to host a celebration of this sort. If you are planning a birthday party, a hen or stag weekend or other larger group get together then please contact us before booking online so we can offer you appropriate dates. We always try to match like minded groups to make sure that all our guests get the sort of experience they are looking for
CAN WE PLAY MUSIC?
We expect all guests to respect each other and the site is large enough that it is rare for one group to disturb another. Quiet to moderate volume music is permitted during the day and evenings as long as it is not disturbing or causing a nuisance to other guests. Unless you have booked the entire site we do ask that music be turned off by 11pm.
CAN WE PLAY SPORTS AND GAMES?
Absolutely, there is lots of space for football, rounders, cricket, badminton etc. We are also happy for guests to bring bikes and cycle - with care - around the site.
WHAT ABOUT PARKING?
We have a large car park situated very close to the glamping meadow where our bell tents and yurts are pitched. We do not allow guests in the meadow to drive right to their tent but the staff on duty will be more than happy to help carry your bags.
If you are staying in one of our Safari Lodges you are welcome to drive to the lodge to unload and then return your car to the car park afterwards.
