    Good Afternoon. You will be checked in to your room before 5pm and if you go out for supper, you will have all access to the property with keys. There should be no problem at all. Kind regards Cassie

    Hi there. Children older than 12 are welcome at Rickety Bridge, which is small and intimate. At our sister property Basse Provence, we are able to accommodate children of all ages.
