Frequently Asked Questions

What time is check-in and check-out?

Check-in is from 2pm on Monday or Friday only. Check-out is any time up to 10am on your day of departure.

What do we do on arrival?

The keys for your accommodation will be in the key safes attached to the outhouse opposite the reception/kitchen area. Your key code will be emailed to you upon booking.

Parking is available in designated parking areas in the farm yard. We kindly ask that you keep all access and entrance ways clear in case the emergency services need to gain access to the site. There is also farm machinery being used within the yard on a daily basis.

What facilities are available on site?

Along with normal facilities such as toilets (with disabled access), showers, washing up facilities and a kitchen area (by the reception), BBQs, fire pit and a hammock are also available for your use. Some charcoal for the BBQ is supplied but we suggest that guests bring their own too if they expect to do lots of barbecuing. There are plenty of logs and kindling for the fire pit and wood-burning stoves on site.

Each Shepherd’s Hut contains all essential cooking utensils, an electric fridge, a hob and a kettle. A toaster is available in the Safari Tent and in the kitchen area next to the reception if required. Guests staying in bell tents are welcome to use the kitchen facilities in the Safari Tent.

If you are bringing small children, we can supply a cot and/or highchair if needed. Please contact us in advance so we can make sure these are available upon your arrival.

The Shepherds’ Huts are fitted with electric sockets and lights. The Bell Tents do not have an electricity supply in them, but do have battery operated lanterns and fairy lights.

There is a hair dryer in the toilet block next to the kitchen area.

Wifi is available in the area around the kitchen, reception and Hayloft venue, but we encourage guests to consider switching off from online life while they are at Highway Hill if they can!

What is included in the accommodation price?

Our prices are per unit and include all bed linen, towels, and torches and lanterns for your night-time walk to the toilet. 

We will supply you with half a dozen farm fresh eggs and a pint of milk for your arrival. If you are staying in a Shepherd’s Hut then these will be in the fridge or electric cooler in your hut, and if you are staying in a Bell Tent then you will find your eggs and milk in the fridge in the Safari Tent. Guests are also supplied with olive oil and vinegar, salt and pepper, pasta, oats for your morning porridge, and tea, coffee and sugar all in the communal Safari Tent.

Can we bring our dog?

Due to the fact that there are a lot animals on the farm, we do not allow pets. There may also be children on the site and not all children/parents are comfortable with dogs. We thank you for your understanding in this matter.
