What you Need To Bring
Don’t forget to bring your bedding and towels. Mattress covers and base-sheets are provided, as are paper or hand towels for the handwashing area and teatowels for the washing up area. All toilet rolls, washing up liquid and equipment, handwashing liquid, binbags, crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils etc are provided. There are various chairs/benches/hammocks/tables around the orchard, so you don’t need to bring these either. If you are unsure about anything, please don’t hesitate to ask. Please remember there is no electricity so if you need to charge phones or other devices please bring your own facilities for doing so.
Arrival & Your Stay
On arrival you will be met by Lynne, the owner of Ruby’s Orchard, and probably Ivy the spaniel. You will be shown around, and then left in peace. Lynne will visit every day to make sure you are happy and to clean the loo and shower area etc, and may stay to work in the orchard some days, but you will have the place to yourselves most of the time, with a mobile contact number to use if there are any problems.
A welcome box including homemade scones, jam and cream, or locally produced saffron buns if you prefer, milk (dairy or non-dairy), local free range eggs and a loaf of bread are provided for you. There will always be sufficient tea/coffee to get you going, and also the basics such as salt and pepper, cooking oil and sugar. If you don’t wish to have the welcome scones etc or you are vegan, please let Lynne know.
