The hens are very entertaining and are looked after, so no need to worry about them. However, if they do get out, (because they escaped while you were collecting their eggs, and you are most welcome) they will return to their hen house just as the sun sets, this is when you can lock them away again safe from foxes. Please do not let them out if your dog is also staying.

Parties and Functions are STRICTLY prohibited. The price charged is for domestic use only and not commercial. Due to respect for my elderly neighbours and neighbours with young children loud noises will NOT be tolerated after 10 pm. Without their blessing this wonderful house would not be available for holiday use. Accordingly this rate does not allow for the extra wear associated with functions in terms of cleaning, garbage removal, wear and tear, repairs etc. Use contrary to this may result in loss of your bond and/or additional payments. ESPECIALLY WHEN DISTURBING THE PEACE. IMMEDIATE EVICTION WILL RESULT. My neighbors phone me when these conditions are broken. This property is within walking distance of the vikings football club so your partying should be done there. Most clubs have curtesy buses to drive you home. After parties are also not permitted.
