Private home not a hotel
This means there will be no reception, or check in, yes it’s a private home. Because we do not have staff it means we cannot see anyone without an appointment.
To arrange a convenient time to come over and view please call us on 01797 22222. If you call after 21:00 your voicemail will be reach us almost immediately and we will reply the next working day.
We want to show you around, we want to hear about your plans as well.
Having an appointment helps maintain a sense of calm order to our lives and those we engage with.
Please keep off the grass
Unfortunately, some people arrive without an appointment and cannot find the reverse gear. Some of them 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, we are keen to keep it that way.
CCTV helps us
Since the old CCTV images were captured in 2004 we had a new system installed.
As you enter Saltcote Lane CCTV captures all vehicle registration numbers before you reach the house where ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Registration system) has logged full details of the vehicle.
Driving on the grass ruins it for others and it’s embarrassing once caught.
Day and night the registration numbers are capture automatically and we get notifications 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.
