We maintain a timetable which you can use as a rough guide during your stay. Please note that given the relaxed atmosphere we are trying to introduce you into, we might not follow the schedule timings strictly. However, this is a guide to show you approximate timings, which we have found to be useful with guests as our normal life is full of carefully planned days.
The daily schedule is on the blackboard of the main dining room for guests to see and plan what activities they might want to partake in. If you have any questions about the timetable, please feel free to discuss with a member of our team.
