Here are some FAQs to help answer any queries or questions you might have. If you require any additional help please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Do you accept pets?
We welcome up to two well behaved dogs at Darnells if you are staying in either the safari lodge or Forest View Pod. It will be your responsibility to clear up after your dog and please don’t leave them unattended in the accommodation units.
How do we order a hamper?
You can order via e-mail before you visit, or up to 3pm the night before in the reception.
Are towels provided?
All towels and bedding are provided.
Is all accommodation non-smoking?
Is there a cot/highchair?
Yes, please request it as part of the booking.
Is there broadband/Wi-Fi on site?
The wifi signal is weak on site at the moment, however we are looking into installing a booster to amplify it as much as possible .
Do you provide facilities for washing/drying clothes?
You will have clothes airier in each unit but we don’t have a washing machine (but can help you out in an emergency!).
Can I drive to the lodge and unpack the car?
Our car park is a short distance to the Safari Lodge and Pods. You will carry your luggage to your accommodation unit. We designed the site this way to ensure that children can run around free without having to worry about vehicles coming through at any point.
When can I check In and Out?
Check in is from 4 pm and we will try to ensure that lodges are ready but occasionally it is not possible due to us finding a very dirty lodge!
You may be able to access your lodge early if it is ready – BUT please text to check before arriving (as it may not always be possible due to the time needed to make the lodges beautiful again for each new set of guests). If you do not get a reply we are probably still hard at work! We may need to direct you to a lovely place to visit for the afternoon if you are too early!
Check out is by 10 am on your departure day – please do try to depart promptly and leave the lodges in a clean and tidy state. We will total up your spend in the honesty shop the evening before and contact you with the total amount payable. Please pay before you leave.
