Electric Car Chargers
We have four EV Chargers available on the Estate, two located at Home Farm Courtyard, and two located at Esthwaite Howe Courtyard. These chargers are advertised on a public app and available for anyone to use at either location regardless of your property. Graythwaite will manage these chargers to the best of their ability, however they are operated by an external company and any issues will be dealt with via external engineers which Graythwaite will contact if any problems do occur. Availablity of the chargers can not be guaranteed specifically for guests. You will not be advised in advance if this facility is removed, but it can be checked via the VendElectric app and we cannot offer refunds or compensation if the chargers are unavilable for any reason.

Please take care when staying in our property.
You are responsible and liable for any breakages or damages you cause to the accommodation or its contents.

Please note that depending on your bank it can take up to 2 weeks for your security deposit to be released back to your account.
All we ask is that you report any incidents as they occur.
We do not normally charge for minor breakages. We may claim against your security deposit for repair or making good if the damage or breakage is significant, and we may make an additional charge if you did not report this to us.
We do not accept any liability for any damage, loss, or injury to any member of your party or any vehicles or possessions unless proven to be caused by a negligent act by ourselves or our employees or contractors whilst acting in the course of employment.
