The Little Guest Hand Book – to make things a little easier

We’re delighted to have you stay with us at Lotties Lodge. To make your stay as enjoyable as possible, we’ve put together some handy information. Please take a moment to read through these notes, and feel free to ask us any questions.

Finding Your Hideaway

As you enter Hutton Village, look for the Old Inn Pub on Main Road. Opposite, you’ll find Orchard Road, which bends left and leads to your home for the next few days. The Old Inn is an award-winning pub with great food. We recommend booking in advance at 01934 812336, especially on weekends.

We are at the top of a horseshoe, so you may arrive from either direction. If you see the Church, you’re almost here! Two circular signs for Walnut Barn Estate will welcome you. Look for the stone barn with “Walnut Barn” painted in white on the gable.

The wooden electric gates are to the left. Enter code 1210. The gates will open automatically when you leave.
