Things you should know

Read more here on what to expect from a stay with us at Cranmer Country Cottages…

We try to engender a friendly laid- back feel to our place, where guests can come and go freely in the knowledge that if something goes wrong there is usually someone around to help.  We do have a few rules in place as this makes for a better and safer experience for everyone.  As a green business we believe that “less is more” however this should not mean fewer home comforts for our guests.  We have done a lot of the heavy lifting in terms of energy & water management, however there is always more we can do, as there really is no plan B.

Please observe the following Property Rules before you book and during your stay:

  •   Check-in: After 16:00
  •   Check out: 10:00
  • Self-check-in with lockbox
  • No smoking in the cottages or on site.
  • No parties or events
  • Pets are not allowed on the main site. Up to 2 medium sized dogs are welcome to stay in End Cottage
  • Pool rules must be observed. See our pool rules here
  • Children must be supervised at all times
  • No extra guests without permission.

  • No Fireworks Chinese lanterns or drones.
  • No EV charging with a cable directly from the cottages
  • Do not plug in heavy use external electrical items ie: air conditioning units or catering equipment. We have a 2-phase supply and this will overload our electrical supply!
