The Rombalds (3 bedroom Apartment)
Courtyard Cottage (3 bedrooms)
We are currently full and can’t confirm exact availability dates until guests currently staying let us know when they expect to complete their house purchase or renovations. All expected upcoming availability is shown on this page and all stays from 1st November are Winter Lets for a minimum stay of 12 weeks. All our accommodation (except The Rombalds which is semi-furnished) is fully furnished and prepared to the highest “We’re Good To Go” standards with all essentials included (pots, pans, cutlery etc).
The Main House is currently unavailable so we have The Old Gallery, three courtyard cottages and our four apartments ready for winter lets.
Your accommodation will be prepared to our usual high standards ready for your stay.
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. With the exception of The Rombalds Apartment, all our cottages and apartments are fully furnished with all pots, pans, glasses, plates etc.
Is bedding provided? For winter lets, we ask you to bring your own bedding, towels and tea towels.
What about bills? Our Winter 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 and electric until 2022/23, so there should not be any winter hikes in your gas or electricity prices.
What about Covid? We have 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? Shared leisure facilities (other than the roof terrace) are now closed.
What is the minimum/ maximum stay and notice period? 12/22 weeks for a Winter Let. We ask for you to pay four-weekly, four weeks in advance of each four-weekly period and 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 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. Winter Lets are exempt of VAT.
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.
