The Rombalds Apartment
All stays with us are now Longer lets (minimum 12 weeks). We no longer offer weekly stays or short breaks.
All upcoming availability is shown here as soon as we know! This is usually around a month beforehand as current guests have to give us 28 days notice of leaving. As everyone is staying on a rolling 4-weekly basis, we don’t know about upcoming availability many months ahead and can’t accept bookings other than for cottages and apartments that we definitely know are becoming available soon.
All our accommodation is fully furnished and prepared to the highest “We’re Good To Go” standards with all essentials included (pots, pans, cutlery etc).
Coach House, Applebarn and Orchard Cottages. Each has 3 bedrooms and private garden.
The best choice for single occupancy, couples and with older children. Shared sunny roof terrace.
So, how does it work?
Is everything furnished? Yes. Unless otherwise shown, our cottages and apartments are fully furnished with all pots, pans, glasses, plates etc.
Is bedding provided? For longer lets, we ask you to bring your own bedding, towels and tea towels.
What about bills? Our longer let prices are inclusive – except heating, electric and water (which are metered and invoiced by us at cost). There is high speed wi-fi, Freesat (around 175 channels) with iPlayer and Netflix compatible and Freeview. You won’t have to register for Council Tax and there will be no other fees, deposits etc.
What about the price of gas? With 9 cottages and apartments here, Paula gets the best deals! We are contracted for gas until 2023, so there should not be any hikes in gas prices.
Can you offer cleaning services? Your accommodation will be fully prepared to the highest standards for your arrival and should be left in a satisfactory condition. If you need cleaning services, we can suggest one of our contract housekeepers.
What about Covid? We acquired the Industry Standard mark “We’re Good to Go” from Visit England for our cleaning protocols and social distancing measures. You must observe all current national and local restrictions.
What about pets? A well behaved dog is allowed to stay in one of our cottages, but not in the apartments. Other pets (hamsters, goldfish etc) are by advance arrangement. We’re sorry but we don’t accept cats.
Is there still a gym? the old leisure facilities are now closed
What is the minimum/ maximum stay and notice period? Minimum stay is 12 weeks for a longer let. There is no maximum stay but we ask that you give us four weeks notice of leaving or wishing to extend your stay (subject to availability).
How much? Our longer lets are much cheaper than holiday stays, because our costs are lower. If you’re planning a lengthy stay, our prices may initially appear more expensive than an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. Remember though, that nearly all your costs are included with us. You won’t be tied to a 6 or 12 month fixed contract and won’t have to sign-up with the electric, water, gas and telephone companies etc.
How far ahead can I book? As we won’t know when current guests are leaving until 28 days before they do, we are only able to confirm stays around 28 days ahead of arrival.
