Do you have Wi-Fi and what is your phone signal like? Yes we have Wi-Fi across the site through two super fast broadband connections. In some areas of Tanglwood the signal can be a bit patchy due to the thickness of the walls but you can comfortably get it in the lounge and dining room. Phone signal outside is generally good with most networks offering 4G signal. Inside the houses can be a bit patchy in places again due to the thickness of some walls.
Can we have fireworks or use drones? Due to us being in a rural area with livestock around the property we are not able to allow fireworks or the use of drones on the site.
Do supermarkets deliver to Lancombes House? Yes. Tesco, Waitrose, Sainsburys, Asda and Ocado all deliver to the property.
Where is the nearest pub/supermarket/bank/anything? There is a Guest Information booklet in each cottage with information and postcodes of all local facilities and information on dog friendly beaches and family events. If you need any advance specific information please let us know.
Do you do food? We are self-catering cottages and do not provide food. However, we have a deal with our local pub The Marquis of Lorne, who can deliver fresh dishes such as lasagne, cottage pie or chilli-con-carne to the cottage for you to just pop into the oven when you're ready. You can see a Sample menu with contact details and how to order here. Vegetarian and Vegan options also available.
How do we pay? You can pay for your stay through bank transfer or credit/debit card payment over the phone. We ask for 1/3 of the total balance as a non-returnable deposit at the time of booking with settlement of the balance 6 weeks before your stay.
Can I bring my pet dog/cat/gerbil/rabbit/duck (or any animal)? Yes we are pet friendly. There is a charge of £7.50 per animal for a weekend stay, £15 for a week. We ask that you just don't leave them unattended in the property for prolonged periods of time and any damage/mess will be charged for.
