Check out is 10am, but again can be up to 3pm by prior arrangement & only where possible, at a charge of £20.
We have many cats and a herd of alpacas (the cats are never allowed in the apartment and we ask guests not to encourage them in please!). Wildlife is abundant as we are so rural and there are wellies for you to use if you want to go for walks. There are also lots of nature identification books for you to take along.
