- Music & Parties
LOG HOUSE HOLIDAY cabins are wonderful places to celebrate a special occasion such as a 25 th wedding anniversary or a special birthday. However, please note that all our cabins are situated around a Special Site of Scientific Interest, designated by Natural England on account of the wildlife and flora which flourish here. To preserve this wildlife and in the interests of other resident guests AND OUR NEIGHBOURS, please do not play music outside of the cabins. Music can of course be played inside the cabins providing the windows and doors are kept closed. We ask guests to appreciate that the sound of shouting also travels very easily across the water. PLEASE NOTE THAT BECAUSE OF THE ABOVE, WE DO NOT ACCEPT BOOKINGS FROM YOUNG STUDENT GROUPS. We have assured Natural England that the number of resident guests on this Special Site will not fluctuate greatly from the maximum number of bed spaces. It is therefore not possible to invite additional guests to your cabin without discussing this with us first and obtaining our permission
