FAQ

Dogs are most welcome here. Please inform us how many and only 2 dogs are welcome in the Cottage. It’s a dog’s paradise with walks straight from the front door and the river near by for swimming. As it’s a working farm we request that your dog is well behaved and kept under control at all times, we have a lot of free range animals around! Don’t let them out of sight when you are walking on the hill as they could chase the deer or sheep. We have working dogs (4 girls) on the farm, please don’t play stick or balls with them while you are here.

We also kindly request that you clean up after your dog, especially dog hairs inside the accommodation. Make sure they don’t go on the sofa or the beds. And please don’t leave them in the accommodation unattended. 

No Vehicle access in the glen without prior permission or only if you are renting one of the accommodations. Road not suitable for motorhomes or caravans. Please don’t just come and visit or drive up to camp. 
Park your vehicle at the quarry and you are welcome to walk or bike. 

The road to the Lodge and Cottage is a rough gravel track. It can be bumpy in parts depending on the season you come and on how much work we done on it recently. We recommend you to come with a high clearance vehicle. Please drive slowly and carefully to save your car as well as our road.

The Lodge and Cottage are only heated by wood burner, so all the fire wood you need is included in your accommodation price. Before you book make sure you are confident in lighting fires as well as in keeping them going. 

Please consider that in the beginning and end of the season the house is usually colder.
