House Rules will be sent to you within 24 hours of your booking. It's all common sense stuff. However, you can cancel within 24 hours of receipt if there's anything you're unhappy with.
Spa access is 2PM to 5PM daily.
The management company imposes a fee of £25 + VAT per person for a spa induction (subject to a maximum of £50 + VAT for a one-off induction of your entire party). If you wish to use the spa, this fee will be payable by you, direct to the spa manager. Being “Elf ’n’ Safety", the induction is compulsory unless you’ve used the spa previously.
For ecological reasons, boating/kayaking isn't permitted on the lakes from 1 October to 31 March in each year. The exception to this is Huntsman's Lake, where fly fishing (and boating for fly fishing) is permitted all year round.
Check-in is 4PM and check-out 11AM.
Please exercise care and respect in the manner in which you use the house, and in the condition that you leave it. Cleaning fees aren’t usually charged, but will be charged if the house is left upside down, and/or if washing up is left for the cleaner to do.
