Wi-fi and mobile coverage

There is private parking to the side of Tutors Lodge.
Please note that Kidlandlee is not on the national grid and is dependent on wind and solar power, with a generator for back-up. This means that the number of electrical appliances in the property is limited to the key essentials and a dishwasher cannot be supported.
The property is strictly no smoking.
Access – Important
While the cottage is situated in a fabulous, secluded position, it is important to note that this is accessed by a three-mile-long Forestry Commission track which comprises loose gravel and cattle grids. This is steep in places and care should be taken, especially during the winter months, as any adverse weather can leave the track rutted. Please drive slowly paying particular attention to the road surface. Sports cars and low suspension vehicles should be avoided. Four-wheel drive vehicles may be required during winter conditions. Please contact us if you have any concerns.
