Paying for your holiday

Please pay a non-refundable deposit of one third of the cost of your holiday on booking. You can pay this by BACS or cheque made payable to Karen R. Burn. Please pay the remaining balance three weeks before your holiday begins.

Arrivals and departure

A holiday week at The Fuffins begins on Saturday. You are welcome to arrive any time from 3.30pm onwards but we ask that you tell us when you will get here so that we can make sure we are available. Please telephone us on 01289 388652 when you arrive in the farmyard so that we can welcome you and show you to The Fuffins.

Please depart before 10.00 am on the last Saturday.

Groceries

There is a small, well-stocked, village shop in Lowick, 2 miles from the farm.

The Green Shop in Berwick upon Tweed, 8 miles from Hunting Hall, has a wide range of organic and Fairtrade goods, including all sorts of groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables.

If you wish to order grocery supplies for your visit, most supermarkets deliver to the farm. For more information about local shops, please contact Karen.

Children

We welcome children of all ages at our cottages and hope they have a wonderful holiday. There are, however, several items in the cottage to make it special. These include antiques, bespoke furniture, ornaments, handmade quilts and floor-length cream curtains. We do ask that children are supervised in the cottage to prevent unnecessary damage. A cot and fireguard are available on request.

There is a small stream and an unfenced wetland area in the Fuffins garden. Young children must be supervised near water at all times.

Pets

We are sorry but we cannot accept pets, though we welcome trained assistance dogs.

Smoking 

Smoking is not permitted in any of our cottages or on the farm.

Cleaning

We know how important it is to find a lovely clean cottage when you arrive, and we take pride in working to exceedingly high standards to make sure your cottage is spotless. Please leave the cottage as tidy and clean as you found it, so we have time to make it exceptional for the next guests, as the people before did for you. We reserve the right to charge a cleaning deposit.

Environmental Policy

Looking after our environment is at the heart of our business. We conserve water and energy and try to make as little adverse impact on the environment as we can – we would ask you to do the same whilst with us. We source locally, from ethical suppliers and recycle as much as possible. Please use the recycling bins provided and be thoughtful about lights and water.

As part of our green policy we only make up beds that will be slept in during your holiday. Laundering bed linen is a long process, using a lot of electricity and water. For this reason, we may ask you to specify which beds you will require made up. Please don’t ask us to provide sheets for more than one bed per person and waste the earth's natural resources.

Please consider greener travel arrangements – we can arrange to pick you up from nearby public transport stops for free. Cycles can be stored in a brick outhouse and may be hired from Ford Village Shop, email: cyclehire@fordvillageshop.co.uk

We look forward to welcoming you to Hunting Hall.
