For the Kids
We understand that it is difficult to fit all the kid's gear into the car, to help on space we aim to be very child friendly and have the following baby equpment. There's no charge - just let us know when booking what you need.
Baby Bath x 1
Stair gate x 1
Child step for reaching toilet/basin x 1
Potty x 1
Baby Monitor x 1
Steriliser x 1
High chair (wood) x 2
Travel cot x 2
We are unable to provide bedding for the cot because of hygiene reasons, but should you forget to bring some bedding, then do please mention this on arrival! Each cottage has a blender (useful for preparing weaning foods) and a selection of plastic cups, bowls and plates.
Baby Sitting Service
We are pleased to be able to offer a baby sitting service from a qualified nursery teacher, subject to booking in advance and availability. The rate is £7 per hour - there will be an extra charge if the baby sitter is required to look after more than 2 children or is needed past midnight or for bank holidays.
You would be required to complete an information form with details of any medication, set routines and details of how you may be contacted in an emergency. The babysitter reserves the right to charge a cancellation fee if the service is cancelled with less than 48 hours notice.
We have a good selection of basic toys for small children such as lego, talking toys and jigsaws in the heated games barn which can be enjoyed there or taken back to the cottage for the duration of your stay.
If it's wet, we have an indoor heated Games Barn with a full-size table tennis table, with play back facility, a large pool table, air hockey, giant Connect 4, Early Learning Centre Noughts & Crosses and giant garden Jenga.
We provide buckets and spades and nets for the beach.
Outside, we have a football goal and ball games area. There's masses of space on our 700-acre farm for walking, picnics on the river bank, and on a shell beach (10 mins from our cottages) or in our vineyard. There are crabbing opportunities on the pier at Felixstowe Ferry or Harwich.
If you have suggestions on how we could be more child friendly do let us know.
