Q. Can we stay for one night only?
A. Past guests tell us one night is not enough and often make the comment “we wish we could stay longer”. Groups over 10 people can stay for one night, however groups under this require the two night stay. Trust us though, you will be glad you stayed and chilled out for longer.
The minimum booking period for long weekends is 3 nights. The minimum booking period for Easter and is 4 nights.
Q. How far are the Huts from each other?
The Huts and Bunkhouse are situated around our gardens. While they are private from each other they are also close in proximity so you have the best of both worlds.
Q. Do you take more than one booking at a time?
A. No. While you are staying at RF, you will be the only booking. All of the Huts are situated around the spacious grounds and gardens of our home so you will of course share the property with our family and all of the animals!
Q. How do we confirm our booking?
A. Once all accommodation, meals and activities have been confirmed over email, bookings need to be paid in full.
