Corsewall Castle Farm Lodges are situated on a working farm. During certain times of the year the farm is busy and there may be a number of heavy machines operating in the fields, travelling along the roads to and from our farm and working around the farm steading. Whilst our machinery operators are highly experienced and vigilant, it is your responsibility to keep yourselves, children and cars a safe distance from the machinery. Often, in order to get work done whilst weather conditions are favourable, it is necessary to work late into the evenings or start early in the mornings. While we endeavour to keep any noise at unsociable hours to a minimum this is part and parcel of rural, agricultural life and we are not liable for any disturbance caused.
The cattle around the farm are naturally inquisitive and may well come up to fences to see what is going on. For the sake of your safety do not go into fields with cattle in them. Do not open any gates. The paths around the farm do not require any opening and closing of gates.
Smoking is not permitted in Corsewall Castle Farm Lodges.
