Hello, we are Felix and Sarah von Racknitz
(please read this carefully so you will know what to expect ).
In 2016 we decided to open our house for B&B guests - it is our home so please do not expect a hotel.
We are both musicians. Sarah is teaching and playing Celtic Fiddle, Felix is a producer & composer.
The house was built in 1875 and you will appreciate that it is perhaps not as well-heated as a modern house. Jumpers are useful to bring - we provide heaters in the rooms if you are cold.
Families : The place is ideal for families - we do not mind having kids running around since our own do the same. For guests expecting peace and quiet through the whole house - you might experience some liveliness - but in your room you should be fine since the house is big enough.
We've only lived here since November 2015 and we are in the constant process of improving the place. Please do not expect four star hotel luxury but you will soon find that the home as a whole is truly magical and special. You can spend the evenings in the large drawing room and totally relax in front of the log fire. If there is anything you are not happy with, please let us know on arrival or during your stay and we will do our very best to rectify any problem. We would rather fix the situation on the spot, than deal with poor reviews. If you do not like it here at all, and you know this right away, we will refund you on the spot - no bad feelings ...
Water : We have our own spring up in the hills and the water comes from the moor so it is quite brown - however it is not dirty - it is quite common in the area unless you are connected to the water grid. We recommend not to drink the water - but we provide filtered water in the room.
Since the house still has a gravity fed water system the water pressure in the showers is not high - but the water gets hot for sure ...
The wi-fi is not very fast and only in the the Drawing room - please do not expect wi-fi in the Rooms - sorry we have no TV.
Guests staying in the Rooms of Corry Lodge:
Please come first to the main house and we will show you where to go. There is a kitchen in the cottage which you can use for making tea or coffees. Please let us know if you wish to use the kitchen.
There is a fireplace you can use but make sure you put the guard on when you go to bed.
We are looking forward to meeting you.
Felix & Sarah
