You can arrive anytime after 4pm – we always leave the keys to your self catering cottage in the door so you can let yourself in at whatever time you arrive.  Departure time at the end of your stay is before 10am. 

Are are of the cottages at Rudge Farm suitable for disabled guests?
Shepherds Cottage is suitable for wheelchair users as it has level access to the cottage and is all on the ground floor with level access.  It also has an accessible bathroom with grab rails around the bath and toilet.  Please note we do not have any official disabled rating for this holiday cottage so please contact us if you have any questions.  You can also find a full access statement on our website.

Do you have mobile reception and is there a payphone?
Mobile phone reception is not brilliant here, but it is getting better all the time – users of the O2 network can now get a signal.  You will probably not get a signal inside your holiday cottage if you are on another network.  There is a payphone in the Information Room (01308 482758).   Incoming calls can be taken, but obviously only if there is someone in there to hear the phone ring.  We can take urgent messages by phone (01308 482630).  

Do you have Wifi?
Broadband in our part of rural Dorset is not exactly super fast at present (although we are expecting fibre optic broadband in the next year) however we now have a free WiFi hotspot in the games room for use for all our guests.  Our incoming broadband signal can't at this stage support video streaming etc. but it can allow everyone to check emails, search on Google, and use facebook and other social media.

What are the parking facilities at Rudge Farm Cottages?
There is plenty of parking space in our car park which is behind the Games Barn and there is level access to the cottages..

Where are the nearest shops?
There is a farm shop at Modbury Farm, approximately 1 mile away on the road to Burton Bradstock.. The shop is open all the time, with a trust box for payment.  2½ miles away in Burton Bradstock there is a village shop in the Post Office and a Texaco garage, which has an integrated Spar store.  Local supermarkets include Morrison's, Co-op and Waitrose in Bridport (6 miles) and Tesco in Dorchester (12 miles).
