LOOKING AFTER YOU
Your safety and enjoyment are of prime importance to us. The building has a fire alarm system, and a sprinkler system with sensors in every bedroom, and emergency lighting inside and out. In the event of the alarm going off, please follow the signs to the evacuation point – every room has a map and details of where to meet. All the bedrooms have fire doors, and so we ask you to make sure they are kept closed. No smoking is permitted in, or anywhere near the building, nor candles or any type of naked flame. We have LED battery candles if you would like to use them and bedroom lights are dimmable.
You are very welcome to wander all of our land, but please be aware that it is a wild landscape. You need to take care as the ground is uneven and can be slippery after rain. We are hoping that the central Sanctuary Field can be kept for peaceful contemplation, but there are plenty of benches all around the land to sit and enjoy the views, birdsong or even the wind in the willows! Our pond is not fenced, so please take care around the edges.
Our 100 metre concrete lane is fairly steep and not lit at night. We have provided mini torches in each room, but you may want to bring your own torch/head-torch with you. The outside of the building is lit by motion sensors once you make it to the top of the hill! Also, not all of the village is lit at night, so if you are returning from the pub after dark, please be aware and take extra care.
