Why appointments are essential

We are a private home, not a hotel, as such there is no reception, no staff and we cannot see anyone without an appointment. There is no external turning space.


To arrange a convenient time to come over and view please call us on 01797 222220

We want to show you around, we want to hear about your plans as well. Unfortunately some people arrive without an appointment, drive all over the grass and wonder why it is not convenient for us to stop what we are doing and chat. The reality is we are doing this because it's fun, let's keep it that way.

Since the images below were captured in 2004 we invested in a new drive, new security and a new CCTV system. We would like to thank the vast majority of really nice people for helping us keep it looking good.

As you enter Saltcote Lane all number plates are captured twice by CCTV, before you reach the furthest end of the drive near the house the ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Registration system) has logged full details of the vehicle and then some. Our system then monitors the line of the drive as shown below.

Most people can find the reverse gear, sadly some people cannot. But nice people do not arrive without an appointment and drive over the lawns. It ruins it for others. Day and night the registration numbers are automatically captured and we are notified each time a vehicle returns. Driving on the grass in December will still pop up and alert us when attending as a guest in the summer.

The system actively alerts us when people cross the line, not everyone knows when they cross the line so this may help.





We host less than 12 Weddings each year by choice, all we are looking for is nice people. Arriving without an appointment will always result in a wasted journey and could cause embarrassment when asked to leave at a later date. There is nothing to see from the outside.

Scores of very discrete CCTV cameras work 24 hours a day. Each one capable of seeing in the dark and offering "really" close up details, including faces.

Some people understand the term "Exclusive", we look forward to hearing from you.
