Bins & Recycling

Please separate your rubbish and recycling and place into the bins that are in the Recycling Area to the right of the ramp as you enter Clifftops, opposite the Clifftops Entrance sign.


We have all you need to have a perfect BBQ on you patio (including a BBQ hamper from the Estate eShop). Contact the Office to request your BBQ and Utensils and we will install it on your patio. We do not keep them in situ so they stay protected and clean.


All the heating in the Lodge is underfloor heating. Set the thermostat dials in each room to the temperature you require and the heating will then gradually adjust. The electric fire can also provide additional heating in the lounge, you will find the remote with your TV remote.

Luggage Storage

Your luggage can be stored in the bed base by standing at the foot of the bed and lifting the lid.

Phone Signal

You may have some issues with your mobile phone signal due to our remote location.  In certain conditions you may even pick up some French call roaming!  We suggest you set you phone to Wi-Fi calling and if necessary you can use the iPad, to communicate using FaceTime.


You can watch the standard channels by pressing the home button on the remote and then selecting from BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 or My5. Alternatively, please feel free to log into your preferred streaming service, please just remember to log out when you leave!


Please ensure that every guest staying at Clifftops is familiar with the fire safety and escape route information available behind the front door on arrival.
