SAFARI TENT RULES

We want you to enjoy your time with us and these rules are made with that in mind:

  • Notgrove is a sleepy old place.  We welcome families and couples but please be respectful of your neighbours and the villagers by turning off any outside music after 9.30 pm – keep the noise down to a respectable level.
  • There is a no smoking policy in the Safari tents.  You’re welcome to smoke outside but please dispose of butts in a bin.  If we find you have been smoking a cleaning fee of £50 will be payable.
  • Please do not leave the gas hobs on when not cooking as it melts the gas rings and could cause a serious accident.
  • Notgrove is a beautiful place and we would like to keep it that way.  Please dispose of all rubbish in the bins provided.
  • We provide a wood burner but no other fires are to be lit anywhere around the site.  You may bring disposable BBQ’s but please ensure you light them on a safe surface – not on the grass, tables or wooden decking.
  • If you are expecting guests, please let us know. Any additional guests not mentioned will be charged £10, no matter how short their visit.
  • The outside communal areas are here for all to enjoy. Please be respectful of other guests wishing to use them – and also of other guests relaxing while you are playing.
  • Dogs are welcome in the tents BUT must be kept under control at all times.  Please do not leave dogs unsupervised in the tents, and all dog poo must be picked up and put into the dog poo bin provided. We would also appreciate dogs being kept off the beds and furniture. Please use the dog towels provided after a muddy/wet walk.  Thank you.
