We are in a very rural location and are incredibly lucky to have an abundance of wildlife that share our woodland with us and call it their home too, including deer’s, hares & badgers to name but a few. Therefore, we regret that pets are not permitted to stay at A Little Bit of Rough (as detailed on our website and in our Terms & Conditions).
The woodland is also surrounded by farmland with livestock adjoining our site, which sometimes like to come for a visit too!
We kindly ask guests with pets to make sure they have made suitable arrangements for their furry loved ones in advance of their stay.
We know that people love their pets, but please do not be tempted to smuggle them in as exceptions will not be made.
Noise – We really want all our guests to enjoy a peaceful relaxing stay with us. Therefore, to keep the woodland peaceful and so as not to disturb the other guests staying / wildlife and our neighbours, we kindly ask that guests keep noise to a minimum from 9:00pm onwards and after 10.00pm the only sounds that should be heard are those of quiet whisperings from our guests and the sounds of the wildlife that call Spindleberry woods their home. We are a predominantly family site and there may well be young children sleeping. You are staying in a canvas lodge, and noise will carry.
We do not allow any music or radios at any time as noise is amplified and it travels very easily between canvas lodges. This also forms part of our site licence.
We also ask guests to be conscious of how much noise their party are making around the fire pits or wood-fired hot tubs at night. We promise we aren’t the ‘Party Police’; we want ALL of our guests to enjoy a stay at A little Bit of Rough, but if you are looking for a venue to come and play music and be up late into the night enjoying karaoke around the fire pit or in a wood-fired hot tub, then we aren’t the site for you.
We have 2 x children ourselves and appreciate that they tend to be early risers! If parents of young children can try to let the adults sleep in in the morning, without unleashing the children to the great outdoors until after 8am it would be greatly appreciated!
In exceptional circumstances we reserve the right to ask you and your party to leave if there is repeated noise after having received two warnings and as you will have breached the terms of your contract with us, no refunds will be forthcoming.
Music – As part of our site license amplified music is not permitted at any time. Please use headphones if you wish to listen to music or any other device
