Terms & Conditions
Including Current COVID19 changes & implimentations
Due to social distancing and Government guides on the number of mixed households allowed in the same accommodation, The Steadings B&B will allow one booking in only at one time, this can be up to a maximum of 3 households to a maximum of 6 guests as per our accommodation capacity. Once one booking has booked a room within the B&B all other accommodation in the main building will be closed off and the booked party will have the entire B&B facility to themselves including guest lounge, and out door hot tub area. This is due to the communal lounge area being insufficient for mixed bookings to accommodate together safely. Again as changes in guidelines and the climate change we will too and update accordingly. Due to social distancing and Government guides on the number of mixed households allowed in the same accommodation, Beech Lodge will allow a maximum of 3 households up to a maximum of 6 guests as per our accommodation capacity.
Unfortunately due to several incidents in the past we are no longer accepting groups of same sex individuals i.e. Hen Groups, Stag Groups, Graduation celebrations, Birthday events, or groups under the age of 25. This is mainly due to excessive noise levels that are simply unacceptable. As previously stated this is a countryside, relaxed, peaceful location with residential neighbours that have to be considered.
Beech Lodge Log Cabin provides a chilled out relaxed setting for your stay. If you are looking for a destination to hold a Hen night, Stag night, Big birthday bash or other party style stay we are simply not the right venue for you. In our quiet setting its all about peaceful, relaxed enjoyment and not partying into the wee hours.
