Early arrivals and late check-outs are at the discretion of Management and must be requested at the time of booking. Whilst every effort will be made to accommodate early arrivals and late departures, the only way to absolutely ensure early check-in or late check-out is to book an extra night or half day where availability permits. Half day rates are charged at 50% of the nightly tariff and will extend the check-out time until 2:00 pm and allow an early check-in from 10:00 am.

Comfort, cleanliness and location
Location was excellent and the grounds were great
Self check in instructions received 2 days before our stay looked daunting online but was remarkably easy in situ. My husband and I stayed inside the house while our travelling companions chose Cottage 2. Both rooms were large, tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. Having access to the gorgeous lounge and large well equipped kitchen topped off our overnight stay. The garden and verandas added an extra dimension to our experience. We enjoyed the artwork throughout.
Suite 6 in the main house was very well appointed, beautiful linen and extremely comfortable bed, old world charm, high ceiling, fabulous rain shower and 2 comfy chairs to relax in overlooking the gardens and stream. Being in the main house was fine, with use of the well appointed kitchen and communal areas.
