We want you to have a safe and enjoyable stay with us and we are keen to explain our work on the farm to you. The Old Granary is set within the working farm yard of Manor Farm and farm machinery will be operating there. There is also a pond and a reservoir nearby. Sometimes people shoot on our land (but dates for this will be put on nearby noticeboards and can be found on the FAQ section of the website). You are responsible for your own safety and the safety of any children with you at all times. Please stay away from machinery in the farmyard and do not enter fields where machinery is operating. Please drive carefully on farm roads and leave gates as you find them. Read any notices and ask us if you are unsure of where you can go.


Guests must be aware that a CCTV system is in operation at the farm yard and in the vicinity of The Old Granary. This is for the safety and security of guests and others accessing the farm yard.

We are a working farm, which means that normal farming life will continue around the barns throughout the year. Certain times of the year are busier than others, but it usually won’t affect the enjoyment of your stay. All our windows are fitted with Stadip Silence Glass and all of the apartments are well insulated with phenolic (noise cancelling) insulation. Farm traffic does not have any visibility into any of the apartments.

Tractors and lorries will access the yard throughout the year, but on the whole we are busier during grain and potato harvest between August and October. Our grain driers may be operating all day and night during harvest which is common practice across all cereal farms. If you would like to talk to us about this before placing a booking, please don’t hesitate to call and we can explain in more detail.
