You can, but….it is difficult to pin a time slot down that will suit both you, and us. We are always busy either hosting parties, clearing up after parties, doing maintenance and upkeep, collecting stores, doing office work, and living life. There are plenty of photos on the website to help you get a good understanding of what is here, and there are ample reviews to let you know what previous groups have said. If you really want to take a peek then we will try to accommodate you. Links to images. Read the Reviews.

It is always a good idea to prepare for everything. While we do have plenty of dry spaces for if it rains we also have large outdoor tables where you can sit and enjoy the evenings, and the mornings. These areas are very popular but it can, and does get chilly. So it is a good idea to bring something warm. Some people bring Onesies. Or maybe you may have an old Christmas Jumper you can wear to give everyone a laugh. A big woolly hat and a pair of thick socks? Absolutely. Enjoy the outdoors in comfort.
