As you have probably seen from our website, Rural Roosts is a quiet, relaxing retreat, therefore we do not encourage large group bookings. We do allow smaller groups of family / friends who are looking for a peaceful getaway together, but I always would ask them to be respectful of the other guests staying at Rural Roosts. We do require a security deposit from any group booking (more than one property), which is refundable following departure. Please contact us to discuss requirements prior to making any group bookings.
