Can I bring my dog?
We are a working sheep farm with animals living close to the venue, therefore, unfortunately, you cannot bring dogs to the venue.

Can I have confetti?
We love confetti! We do ask that this is biodegradable and used outside only.

What is already in The Farmhouse and The Keep?
We supply bedding, towels, dressing gowns & crockery for our accommodation so you don’t need to bring any of this with you. We can provide extra linen for you at an additional charge.
