Whimbrels Holiday Home


There is a noticeboard in the sitting room, where we would encourage you to pin any information that you think might be useful to other guests. We also provide an information file for guests. Do please take the time to read this, as it should answer many of your questions. The file is a living document – we would encourage you to add Post It notes with any information that you gather, or gaps that you need filled, and we will update the file during the year.


Please do not arrive at Whimbrels before 4.00 p.m., and make sure that you leave by 10.00 a.m. You should expect to find Whimbrels clean and tidy on your arrival. Please let us know if this is not the case. Please could you make sure that you leave the house in the same state for our next guests. If you would like help with cleaning, please contact Tracey Custance on 07976-940283, who can assist, and will charge you directly.


The key to Whimbrels is contained in the key safe in the porch. The key safe number for the year will be notified when your final payment is received. Once you have opened the front door, we suggest that you replace the key in the safe, and for the duration of your holiday use the spare key that is in the pot in the kitchen.


Duvets, blankets and pillows are provided, but please bring your own sheets, duvet covers, pillowcases and towels. Please ensure that these are used. If you prefer to hire, there is a local service, and details can be sent to you.


We operate an honesty box system for the telephone at Whimbrels. The phone is programmed to call you back and advise you of the cost of your call. Please leave the appropriate cash, or a cheque if the bill is considerable in the box, from whence it will be collected by the caretaker. The phone number is 01208-863479.

Dustbins/Wheely bins

Whimbrels rubbish and recycling is collected every Friday by a private contractor. Full details are in the house and on the wheely bins. There is also a doorstep poo bag bin. Please ensure that all dog waste is bagged.

Bin liners are provided for the kitchen bin, and there is always a supply in the laundry.
