Red Squirrel Cottage is a traditional, stone built, 3 star cottage, at the Courtyard in the centre of Kirkwood farm. Comfortable standard, it is great value for money. The farm is the venue of Real Farm Holidays where working farming practices intertwine with genuine farm experiences for holiday makers. Groups of travellers can take several cottages (up to 32 bedspaces) Please note our House rules before booking, because our prices are based on £pppn PLUS a one-off charge to us for booking/admin. Tripadvisor should show you this and make a total. This is a semi-detached cottage, beside others at a courtyard, right in the centre of the Kirkwood Estate and farm. With lots of garden all around, indeed surrounded by farmland, woods and fields, it is a wonderful countryside environment....Red Squirrel Cottage is a traditional, stone built, 3 star cottage, at the Courtyard in the centre of Kirkwood farm. Comfortable standard, it is great value for money. The farm is the venue of Real Farm Holidays where working farming practices intertwine with genuine farm experiences for holiday makers. Groups of travellers can take several cottages (up to 32 bedspaces) Please note our House rules before booking, because our prices are based on £pppn PLUS a one-off charge to us for booking/admin. Tripadvisor should show you this and make a total. This is a semi-detached cottage, beside others at a courtyard, right in the centre of the Kirkwood Estate and farm. With lots of garden all around, indeed surrounded by farmland, woods and fields, it is a wonderful countryside environment. At the Courtyard, there is a small children's play area (swings etc), a games room with table tennis, darts and full sized snooker table, and a laundry room with extra freezer space. Around the farm there are beautiful walks, whether you walk alone or have a dog (pets are free of charge as long as you ask us first and no damage is done), and there are many other farming and countryside activities. Fishing is a speciality at Kirkwood. The wildlife is amazing with badgers, deer, otters, red squirrels, hares and many more animals, birds, insects, fish, and flora often to be seen. Check in after 4pm. Smoking outside please. Check out 10am please. Note sheets and bed linen is included but towels are NOT. They can be hired along with many other items such as extra bed linen, barbecues and fishing kit. Fuel (mainly electricity) is also not included in the price but will be charged at exactly the electricity company's rate and all these will be deducted from deposit, the balance of which is returned after the holiday ends. PLEASE NOTE – for each booking via Tripadvisor there is factored in a one-off booking/admin charge (the same for a day or a week, it makes longer stays really great value for money). It is not refundable. There is also an extra £100 if guests leave on Mondays because that is our housekeepers' day off (so its best to depart on Sundays please). This is not factored into the total and you expressly agree, if your booking ends on Mondays, that this can be deducted from the deposit.... Tripadvisor take the deposit in advance. This covers not just damage/security but also it pays for anything used/hired/enjoyed when you are here. For example, if you buy a dozen eggs we deduct from deposit rather than ask for cash. If you go quad biking or fishing we can deduct costs from the deposit. The net amount is refundable, by Tripadvisor, after your holiday. Finally we should warn you that if you pay through any online travel agency, and not us direct, then in the unlikely event that that Agency defaults and we do not get paid, you will still owe us or we could not honour your booking. We advise you to take out insurance for this and for all cancellation circumstances. More
