Arrival Day Suggestions

We try really hard to get all our guests in before our official 4pm check in time. However we're not able to confirm any earlier check ins as we have a list as long as our arm now (thanks COVID) of cleaning procedures, and depending on how we 'find' the retreats, is dependent on how quickly we can turn them around :)

We've put together a list of our favourite things to do if you're arriving earlier. Feel free to park in our carport too. Anytime from 12pm

The Bull Pub, Cottered

There is now a small shop located inside our local pub - hooray!

It stocks the basics like bread, cheese, fresh fruit and veg, plus items from their menu and meat. They also serve bacon sarnies and teas / coffees
