Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have to be vegan to stay at Crotchet Barn?
No, you don’t! We welcome everyone to stay although we do request that whilst you are at the property you do not consume any animal products including meat, dairy, eggs and fish.
Do you accept dogs or other animals?
Yes, we do! We are dog friendly and have provided spare bowls, blankets, tags, leads, towels and local vet information. There is an outside tap and hose for washing off muddy paws after walks. We ask that you bring your dogs own bed for their comfort and relaxation. We just request that, for the comfort of other guests, dogs do not sleep in/on the bed and that blankets are used to cover the sofa.
As we have our own rescue dog living on site, we also ask that our guests do not bring aggressive dogs with them. Please bear in mind that although the garden is fenced, the fence is only 3-4ft high so could be jumped by a keen dog!
If you would like to come to stay with any other companion animals, please contact us to discuss options.
Why do you not allow children under the age of 2?
Crotchet Barn does not have any internal safety features for very young children and infants, or any equipment to help you care for your children such as cots, high chairs or changing facilities.
At your request, we can provide child friendly table ware, games and books. We have covered all electric sockets and there are safety latches on the kitchen and bathroom cupboards. There is a fire guard around the log burner, but please take extra care of the fire is lit and your children are in the room.
The Barn is also located on our working small holding/ food forest, which has spaces that may be hazardous to young children if they went exploring!
What times are check in and check out?
Check in is after 1600. Check out is before 1000.
How much is it to buy logs for the log burner?
All logs, kindling, firelighters and matches needed for the duration of your stay are included in the price. If you run out, just let us know and we will restock your supply. We provide clear instructions on how to light the wood burner too.
Is there parking?
There is free parking on site, right outside the Barn, for up to four cars.
Do you have electric vehicle charging points?
We do not have any electric vehicle charging points on the property. However, there are two charging points in the car park of the village hall which is about 1/2 mile away. They are for use by residents and visitors to Stoke St Gregory and are accessible via an app. The instructions for use are on the points.
Lovely place to stay, the cottage has lots of character. Was amazing to see the stars at night due to the rural location (no light pollution). Hosts left fresh fruit and veg, which was a lovely gesture. The bed is huge and there are hard, medium and soft pillows to pick from. A good sized T.V., lots of appliances and lovely garden space. Many thanks for the lovely getaway 🙂Dan, 5 Stars
