Small Weddings

If you would like a small wedding of up to 30 guests you can hire the Garden Room for your vows and use the grounds, cottages and gardens to celebrate. Terms and conditions apply. 

Dogs, Horses and Pets are welcome at the Farm in the Courtyard Properties by arrangement. We do not Charge for any animal, however in bringing a pet to the farm your agree to our Terms and Conditions and agree to clean up both inside and out before you leave. 
we also have resident Dogs, Cats, Horses, Alpacas Goats, Geese, Ducksw, Chickens and hedgehogs! and our two dogs sometimes like to come and say hello as this is their home……
Sadly No Pets are allowed in The Farmhouse Purdy’s Place nor the Alpaca Hut as we try and keep these as allergy free as possible.  (Please be aware that  we cannot guarantee these being allergy free as we have a large number of animals on site at the Sanctuary)
If you would like to bring your Horse we have fields you can use for turning out
You can find our Pet Rules in our Terms and Conditions. Please be aware that no dogs can be left unattended at any time in the cottages and supervision is always required. Leads are not always required around the farm unless we have young or infirm animals in the fields, however we always work on trust and ask you to be mindful of your pet. We have farm fields and paddocks you can exercise your pet in. Consideration in cleaning up after them as well as leaving the properties clean and tidy upon departure thank you.
Guests are welcome to feed the Alpacas and Goats as well as go and collect eggs from the Hen House (subject to laying) This is a great experiance and we can arrange this with you when you arrive. 


Hot Tub

We have two Hot Tubs

One is hired with the Farmhouse by appointment.

The Alpaca Hut has its own Hot Tub where exclusively is assured.

 Hot-Tub Terms and Conditions apply

Due to Covid, Legislation has changed with regards to the use of Hot Tubs for Holiday Lettings. This means that we cannot provide a hot tub for groups.

You can only have a hot tub in situ for the number of guests in the cottage, and only those guests can use that tub.  Therefore the alpaca hut tub would be for 2 guests only. Purdy’s place would need their own hot tub for 4 guests only and so on…… you cannot hop in and out of a hot tub that is used by others unless it is a commercial tub which sadly ours isn’t, therefore use of the Hot Tub is for only those guests staying in the respective accommodation.
