Frequenty Asked Questions

Is there internet access?
Wi-Fi is available from all parts of the property and outside driveway. A password for this is to be found within the property and in the Welcome Pack.

What are the possible bedroom configurations?
There are three separate bedrooms.
Bedroom 1 (Ground floor) is a double bed with a large en-suite shower/WC/sink
Bedroom 2 (1st Floor) has two full size single beds in it
Bedroom 3 (1st Floor) has a Super King Zip&Link bed - which can be separated on request to make two full size singles

A cot can be made available. The total occupancy could, therefore, be 2+2+2 + infant

Whilst bedroom 2 and 3 do not have en-suite facilities - a shared bathroom with a roll top bath, larger shower, sink and WC is available for the exclusive use of guests in bedroom 2 and 3.

Is the property and location family friendly?
We have designed and furnished the property to a very high standard with convenience, comfort, safety, enjoyment, eco-considerations at the forefront of our minds. Children are most welcome and we are always delighted to provide opportunities to see and feed the animals on a supervised basis by arrangement. There are safe areas to play and entertain. There is an XBox360 for those wet and windy days where you just want to stay in and read a book and keep the kids amused!

Is my car going to be safely parked?
There is off road parking for two vehicles dedicated to the letting property. The area is particularly safe as far as reported crime is concerned. There is also ample external lighting for the night wanderers.

What about pets?
Pets are not allowed in the property (except assistance dogs by arrangement) mainly because many dog breeds love to chase hens and ducks and we have many of those free ranging on the smallholding.

What about smoking?
There is no smoking allowed within the property or anywhere except by the bistro table at the front of the property. Please use the pot of soil under the table at this location for the disposal of cigarette butts.

What payment methods are there?
The following methods of payment are accepted. Cash, BACS (details will be provided) , Cheque (which you will need to allow time to clear).

We have no Credit/Debit card machine.

Terms and Conditions?
A 50% deposit needs to be made to secure your booking and the balance is due 4 weeks before your stay or complete payment immediately on booking if there is less than 4 weeks before your arrival.

We will only return a deposit if the booked week/days are able to be re-let - and we promise to always be as fair as possible in this respect. You are therefore advised to take out your own travel insurance to cover you in case you are unable to make your holiday booking for any reason outside of your control.

Shopping for food and eating out?
Castle Cary has a great delicatessens shop, art and craft and local small shops including a Co-operative.Thai restaurant, Chinese, Indian, fish 'n' chips, Kabab/Pizza takeaways all provide a quick fix on "non-cooking" nights!!  Tescos will deliver to the address of the main property but if you prefer a trip to the supermarket then we have Morrisons @ Wincanton, and all the main one's in Yeovil. There are some excellent local pubs serving good food and good beer. If you like cider then "Thatchers Gold" is the product of choice!
