We do not like many country house hotels have a 24 hour manned reception. This means if your stay involves you returning later than 11.20 PM at night please do not book a room with us. Within the building at night if you require assistance we provide a contact point for our night supervisor but we do not permit guests re-enter into the building after 11.20 PM.   This is for security and so as not to disturb the sleep of other guests.
