What do I need to bring with us in the way of cooking utensils?
Why do we have to pay extra for bringing our dog?
We have very high standards of cleanliness, in order to maintain these standards we dedicate extra time to cleaning the hut after pets. We charge a £20 fee to cover the additional cleaning.
What happens if we need to cancel our booking?
Once a booking is confirmed, i.e. the deposit has been paid and the booking accepted, the guest is responsible for the total cost of the holiday as shown on the invoice. We therefore strongly recommend that you take out holiday cancellation insurance with your insurance broker.
If the guest has to cancel their holiday they must notify Conies Farm Shepherd's Hut by telephone immediately and also in writing. This can only be accepted from the party leader. If notice is received more than 8 weeks from the start of the holiday, the deposit amount (30%) will be forfeit.
If the guest cancels less than 8 weeks from the start of the holiday, the guest is liable to pay for 100% of the holiday cost. Conies Farm Shepherd's Hut will do its best to re-let the property booked and, if successful, the guest's liability for the balance of rental beyond the 30% deposit will cease. If CFSH has not been successful in re-letting the property the guest remains liable for the full cost of the holiday.
We have three children...the hut sleeps 2 adults and 2 children, can we bring an air bed for our 3rd child?
Due to the 'bigoux' dimensions of the hut you would struggle to enjoy the hut with a fifth person sleeping in it. We are happy for you to bring your own tent to pitch up next to the hut where you can put your air bed and sleep up to 2 additional children. We charge an additional fee of £25 to pitch a tent, please let us know at time of booking. We do not provide tents so please bring your own.
Can we bring our dog?
Well behaved dogs are welcome by prior arrangement at the time of booking. Please read our terms and conditions page
for more details .
Can we smoke in the hut?
The Shepherd's Hut is a strictly no smoking property. Smoking is forbidden inside the hut. You have a 3/4 acre paddock of outdoor space in which to smoke. Please dispose of your cigarette butts in the dustbin and respect the land.
