As The Old Granary is located on a working farm, in order to keep your furry friends safe, we do not allow pets. Sorry!
Can I smoke
While smoking is not allowed inside any of the properties, we do offer comfortable and convenient outside seating areas where it is permitted.
What availability for car parking is there?
Our aim is to make your stay with us as convenient as possible, which is why we offer one car parking space per bedroom. If you require additional car parking please get in touch with us prior to your arrival date.
Do you supply a welcome pack?
We do indeed! Upon arrival, all properties will have a welcome pack that includes tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, sugar, a pint of milk and a selection of cereal.
What supplies are provided?
Basic cleaning products are provided.
What service provision is provided?
If you’re staying for 6 nights or more, we’ll change your linen and clean your property on a weekly basis. This takes place every Wednesday.
We can also provide an additional full clean for £25.
Can a cot or high chair be provided?
As we are a working farm and the safety of our guests is our priority, we don’t feel that these apartments are ideal for children, however, should you wish to bring your little ones along, we can of course provide you with a cot and a high chair.
Do you have wifi?
Those looking to work, surf the web or stream their favourite TV show or film can do so with ease as free wifi is provided with each property.
What happens if I arrive after the office is closed?
Prior to your arrival, you’ll be given access details for the gate. We’ll also provide you with a contact telephone number should you require assistance upon your arrival.

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.
What does ‘a working farm’ mean to me and my holiday?
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 aII 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.
