Following a few questions from various people, we were on a mission to find out everything we could when we visited Wilderhope yesterday. So here goes:
If I am staying at Wilderhope can I arrive on Friday night?
Yes you can arrive on Friday after 5pm. The bridal party will be at the church around 6ish for a prep session but will be at Wilderhope later. All we ask is that everyone gives a helping hand at the night time.
Will there be breakfast on Saturday and Sunday morning for those staying at Wilderhope ?
Breakfast will be available for all those staying at Wilderhope. Bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, beans, toast, fruit, croissants and tea/coffee will be available.
We are coming to the evening party and staying at Wilderhope, can we arrive late afternoon on Saturday?
Yes. If you plan arriving later in the afternoon please could you contact us to let us know,so we can let Wilderhope staff know. As the day guests will be in the main hall at this time, guests will need to use an alternative route to access their rooms.
I am bringing a young child/baby and wondered if you have a room to prep baby food/heat a bottle.
There will be a small kitchen for guests to use. If you want to bring a bottle warmer and leave it in here to use that would be fine. There will be some space to store food in the fridge as well if need be.
Is there wheelchair accessibility?
The main hall is accessible, as long as you enter the building from the back of the building via the ramped gravel path. If you are bringing a van then you will need to pull up to the side of the building, to find the level part of the car park. Inside there are two steps into the bar and parlour at the back so extra assistance may be needed here. Unfortunately there is no access to the rooms upstairs or the snug downstairs.
There is an accessible toilet at the back of the building, with grab rails and lowered sink.
Will there be much parking space at Wilderhope?
There will be 30 spaces but we will be contacting the local farmer to see if they will allow any further parking. If possible we encourage people to car share as much as possible. Thanks!
I have special dietary needs will I starve?
For those who have been in touch already we will be arranging alternative food choices which includes coeliac arrangements. If you have forgot to tell us please could you,let us know and we will see what we can do.
Is there any wifi connection at Wilderhope?
Unfortunately there is no wifi connection at Wilderhope and mobile phone reception is patchy. We will be holding a support group on Sunday morning for those technically minded people who have withdrawal symptoms.
What time will food be served at night time?
We are thinking of serving food around 9pm for the evening party. There will be wedding cake and a few other nibbles to keep people going until then, so all being well you won’t be hungry.
Hope this covers all the questions that everyone has asked but any problems then please get in contact. Happy? Mister B is clearly.
