FAQs

Do you accept dogs?

Unfortunately we cannot yet accommodate your four legged friends in our flag ship rental The Old Tractor Shed, however do check back as we hope to welcome well behaved dogs in our yurts, teepees and bell tents which we are planning for Summer 2021 and we may well change our pet policy as we grow our brick conversion properties.

 

How close is the nearest shop?

The nearest village store is in Stoke Golding and is approximately 2 miles away.  Semhbi Stores is a newsagent, convenience store and off licence but has limited opening times so may be best to check before setting off.

Morrison’s is the nearest supermarket approximately 3 miles towards Hinckley, and the town also offers Sainsburys, Tesco, Lidl, Aldi and Asda stores too.

 

How far is the nearest pub?

The Dog & Hedgehog is our nearest pub and restaurant.  Viewed directly across from The Old Tractor Shed this fine English pub is just a short 5 minute walk away.  We are planning to open a pit top pathway for exclusive use of our guests directly to the road opposite the pub.

The next village of Stoke Golding is home to three more fine establishments, the White Swan, the Three Horseshoes and the George & Dragon, all serving food and the usual array of drinks, with the Three Horseshoes hosting The Mango Tree Indian Cuisine.  Sutton Cheney is a short drive away (or a walk in daylight) and is home to the Hercules Revived offering a gastro pub experience with an outdoor pizza area.

 

Do you allow smoking in the property?

All our properties have a strict no smoking policy and smoke alarms are fitted in the properties for your safety.

 

Do you have a restaurant or cafe?

We currently do not have catering facilities on site.  Each property offers a fully equipped kitchen and BBQ for guests to cook, and there are a host of pubs and eateries within a short distance.  We can provide a welcome hamper of locally grown, made and brewed items, and please feel free to contact us if you have a specific package in mind such as a breakfast hamper.  We will do our very best to accommodate all requests.

 

Do you offer accommodation for families with children?

We currently do not offer accommodation to children under 12 years due to the nature of our farm site. As we develop our other brick conversions, we may change our policy.

 

Do you offer a concierge service?

We can offer as much, or as little, as you need to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as we can.  Some guests prefer total isolation and no contact, whereas other prefer us to book outings and dining, offer interim or daily cleans and ensure the hot tub is always ready.  Whether you just want fresh ice, you like new towels daily or you need us to help with planning your days, just let us know and we can tailor a package for your stay.

 

Do you have a Covid cleaning procedure in place?

We are committed to the AirBnB 5 Stage Cleaning Plan and we also have out our Covid Policy in place to ensure your safety.

 

Is the wood fired hot tub easy to use?

Yes, it’s very simple.  The tub will be lit by us ready for your arrival and only needs a couple of logs adding once again that day.  It heats up within 2.5-3 hours and then the fire should then be let to die out.  You can enjoy the tub in the evening and then replace the insulated cover which keeps it warm into the next morning.  Later on the fire can be relit (for guests requiring help we are more than happy to pop in to do this for you) and the tub will warm up again for the afternoon/evening. We will remove ashes and clean the tub after your checkout.  For guests staying longer than 2-3 nights, we can arrange to clean the burner during your stay.

 

Is there parking on site?

Yes, we have allocated parking for up to 4 cars in our courtyard right near to the private entrance to The Old Tractor Shed.  Cars and their contents are left entirely at owners’ risk.
