Turn Up & Stay Policy


You are here to relax. Having to go to the supermarket for essential items on the first night you arrive distracts you from the very purpose of your stay. Our ‘turn up & stay’ policy supplies you with a starter package that has everything you need to get relaxing, immediately. Your time off is precious and we want you to start enjoying your visit from the moment you open the gate to the cottage.

The starter basket includes the basics, no doubt you will have to visit the supermarket at some point though. For information on optional services that make your visit easier, click here.
