Here are some Frequently Asked Questions that may be helpful when planning your stay at Beaverbrook 20:

What time can I arrive at the property?

The check in time for Beaverbrook 20 is 4pm. Unfortunately, it won't be possible for you to arrive earlier than this as we'll still be busy preparing for your stay. If you think you might be arriving in the area earlier, how about stopping off for lunch at one of the recommended pubs (see below), or visit one of the nearby towns or villages - like Ilminster, Chard, or Crewkerne.

We think we may like to travel down a bit earlier - is there somewhere we could stop for something to eat before arriving?

There are some very good places to eat nearby; we recommend the following, though it's advisable to book ahead:

The Five Dials, Horton

The Trading Post Railway Carriage Cafe 

The New Inn, Dowlish Wake

The Windwhistle Inn, Windwhistle Hill

How do I find the property?

When you've made your booking you'll be able to access the My Booking page on our website and you'll find detailed directions. It's always best to use these rather than relying on SatNav, otherwise you might miss the turning to Beaverbrook 20. Remember to give these directions to anyone else in your group who is driving.

On arrival where should we park?

Beaverbrook 20 has a large private car park, with a sign at the entrance. Park there and walk up to the barn, and when you've got your bearings, perhaps had a cup of tea and that, you can drive round to the courtyard to offload.

Does this property allow two night stays?

Yes, this property has a two night weekend option. The two night breaks are from 4pm Friday - 4pm on Sunday. We must ask that you have leave the property promptly by 4pm, or you risk being charged for extra time in the property or having some of your cautionary deposit held rather than being returned. Note that owners, housekeepers or cleaners may visit the property after 4pm to check that guests have left or to start their chores.

We are thinking of inviting people over for the day is this allowed at your property?

Unfortunately this is not allowed at any of the Sleeps12 properties. This is clearly set out in the Terms and Conditions that we ask you to read at the time of booking. There is a maximum occupancy for each property that must not be exceeded for insurance/health & safety reasons, so every person who is a guest at the property must be added to the booking (we'll need their names and ages). If you have invited people to visit without realising this then you must call the office so that relevant permissions can be obtained from the owners of the property. 

Can I have a food delivery to the property?

Yes you can arrange to have a food delivery to the property when you arrive or during your stay. We ask that delivery slots are made for after the arrival time of 4pm and that you are there to receive the delivery personally. We recommend that you put your mobile number and name on the delivery information. The following shops will deliver to this property: Asda, Waitrose, Sainsburys, Tesco and COOK. 

How do I access the property on the day of my stay? Will the owner meet me there or do I have to find the keys?

All of your check-in information is provided for you about 4 weeks before your arrival. You will be emailed a link to this once it is available. You can view your check-in information by logging into the My Booking section of our website using your booking reference number and your email address. Then you'll be able to see the owner's contact details (in case you are going to arrive later than 4pm) as well as how to access the key if a key lock is provided.

The departure time is 10am for all stay, with the exception of two night weekend breaks in which case the leaving time is 4pm on Sunday. You must leave the property promptly by 4pm, otherwise you may be charged for extra time in the property or some of your cautionary deposit may be held.
