Farm traffic and equipment
The hotel is no longer a working farm; however, the surrounding land is leased to farmers. This means that farm equipment including tractors and trailers do occasionally have to circulate the farm. Children must always be supervised to prevent any risk. The perimeters of the farm has traditional Lakeland walls which are boundary walls only and are not to be used for access to any areas.
Ball games and anything similar are not permitted at any point. This is for health and safety reasons.
There is some livestock around the farm. This means some risk is posed regarding being bitten, pecked etc. by poultry, sheep, or dogs. The risks are reduced if people follow health and safety regulations and acknowledge signs on gates which state “no access”. Most poultry is free range and therefore should be treated with respect. Risks will be minimised if they are not feeling threatened or scared by guests.
The farm animals are not tame or domesticated so guests are not to engage with them within close quarters. Please do not enter the fields at any point.
We ask parents to accompany children when going to view the poultry. We also advise that guests are extra careful in spring and summer as some of the livestock are more protective throughout this time and therefore can be aggressive.
There are four designated fire escapes in The Yan, the hotel porch door which automatically unlocks when the fire alarm sounds, both doors out of the chalet and the central door in the bistro.
The fire meeting point for all properties and guests is the gate to the north side of the farm at the far side of the lower level car park.
