Arrival & Car Parking Facilities

There is ample off road parking which is close to the front door of the farmhouse. We are happy to help guests with luggage from their cars to their rooms. The car park is constructed of road planings, and the front path is of old bricks. Guests should take care on these if wearing high heels or of limited mobility.

Main Entrance

By night there is good lighting from the car park to the front door which is activated by PIR sensors. Guests are provided with their own front door key if they are coming back very late.

Inside the door is a small entrance hall then guests pass through the dining room to the hall at the bottom of the stairs.

Public Areas - Hall, Stairs, Landing, Corridors etc

The stairs are steep by modern standards and lead up to the guest accommodation which is found on the first and second floors. The stairs to the second floor are a little steeper as they were originally built over 500 years ago. Whilst there are handholds this property is not at all suitable for people with wheelchairs or mobility difficulties

Public Areas - Sitting room, lounges, lobbies etc

There is a guest sitting room on the ground floor entered via a couple of steps. This is a bright and airy room with large double doors out on to the terrace where in the summer the guests are welcome to sit.

Public Areas – Outside

From the guest terrace there is a large level garden with lawns and flower beds. There are three unfenced ponds on the property and guests are to be responsible for their children AT ALL TIMES. At the far end of the garden are gates leading to the field and woodland area. Guests are welcome to walk there but reminded that the ground is uneven. One of the three unfenced ponds can be found at the far end of the woodland area.

Future Plans

We have recently upgraded and updated our facilities. The PLUTO room is an ensuite family room available for single occupancy through to a family with two children. This was completed late October 2010.

We have updated the soft furnishings and linen in the guest accommodation, and updated the decoration in the Doodlebug Room.

Stone Green Farm is constantly maintained to keep the property at the high standard welcomed by our guests.

We welcome your feedback to help us continually improve if you have any comments please phone 01233 720365 or email info@stonegreenfarm.co.uk
