Noise Policy

  • The house is set in private grounds but we do have neighbours whose needs we respect – and who are used to enjoying a peaceful, tranquil environment in this lovely location. We therefore ask all our guests to show consideration to the environment and our neighbours in all matters, and especially with regard to noise.To help ensure everyone’s holiday goes well, we ask you to respect the following noise rules:
  1. After 11pm please use the terraces and gardens around the house as quiet areas.
  2. Please do not set up music systems outside the house.
  3. Please limit any loud music playing inside the house so it cannot be heard outside.
  4. Please show consideration for our neighbours in the early morning and late evening.
  5. If you are having any deliveries or ordering taxis please ensure they have clear directions.
  • The vast majority of our guests will of course behave with great consideration to our neighbours and would never intend to offend but observing our noise policy will remove any potential for the harmonious environment to be disturbed.

Pet Policy

  • Should you be bringing a pet with you on your stay, you must comply with the below policy and rules that the owner has in place. This policy applies to all pets and not just dogs.

  7. Where there are other properties near the house, dogs should be kept on a leash and you must be mindful of other people and animals, including livestock, in the vicinity so as not to allow your pet to become a nuisance
