To make a reservation at the hotel, check availability by phone or email. I will then make a provisional booking and will hold for 3 days.  You then complete the booking form and pay your deposit.  Upon receipt, I will email confirmation and your booking is complete.

Check in/out hours:

 

WINTER 1st October to 28th February 8.30am - 10.00am (delivery and collection AM only)

Drop off and collection arrangements for 2021:

 

AS DELIVERIES HAVE COME IN A VARIETY OF INAPPROPRIATE CONTAINERS, I HAVE REVISED THE NEW DROP-OFF ARRANGEMENTS. 

I shall continue to observe social distancing for the foreseeable future.

Therefore there will be different drop-off, collection and payment arrangements.

When you bring your flock, please stop and unload onto the driveway outside The Hen Hotel. I will then take them to their pen, making your stop on the farm track as swift as possible. 

  • BIRDS MUST BE DELIVERED IN PLASTIC OR METAL DOG OR CAT CARRIERS ALLOWING PLENTY OF VENTILATION. THESE MUST BE OF A SIZE/WEIGHT THAT ONE PERSON CAN CARRY. 

  • DO NOT BRING CARRIERS LARGER THAN 2 FEET WIDE AS THEY WILL NOT FIT THROUGH THE DOORWAY, OR SOLID PLASTIC TOTES AS BIRDS IN THOSE CAN OVERHEAT WITHIN A FEW MINUTES.

  • IF YOU ONLY HAVE CARDBOARD BOXES FOR THE DROP OFF, I HAVE NO FACILITIES TO STORE THEM OR KEEP THEM DRY. I WILL NOT DISPOSE OF THEM. HOWEVER, I HAVE PLASTIC PET CARRIERS AVAILABLE FOR SALE £10-£30, FOR THEIR RETURN JOURNEY. 

  • IF YOU ARRIVE WITH AN UNSUITABLE (heavy, over sized) CONTAINER, YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR TRANSFERRING YOUR FLOCK INTO ANOTHER CAGE BEFORE I TAKE POSSESSION. 

  • I WILL STRICTLY ENFORCE HUMAN CONTACTLESS DELIVERY. 


On the day before collection I will email you a copy of your invoice and details of the direct bank transfer into my account. This payment must be made before collection.

Your flock will be ready at the entrance to The Hen Hotel on your check out date at your designated time.

As internet reception at The Hen Hotel is poor, if you are running late, please telephone me. 

I am putting these procedures in place to keep everyone as safe as possible. 

Thank you for your understanding.
