Q: Are you close to Mallory Park Racing Circuit?
A: Honestly, the majority of the time it is very peaceful and quiet in Kirkby Mallory. However we are a couple of fields away from the circuit so depending on the event and which way the wind is blowing you may hear the bikes or cars when an event is on. We always recommend that you check the racing diary for any events that you may wish to attend or which you may feel would disturb your holiday. In general, when an event is on it starts around 9.30am and ends around 5pm, the evenings are always quiet. There are many weekends during the year that have no events on at the track.
They also offer track days and the racing car experience track days. We did one a couple of years ago and it was fantastic.
Q: How do you manage the hot tubs?
A: Our hot tubs are filled with warm fresh water before your arrival and sanitised using bromine to ensure safe bathing. Chris and I are BISHTA trained and very experienced in hot tub management. We test them each day of your stay and adjust sanitiser levels as required. We always ask that you follow the safe bathing regulations that you will find in your lodge upon arrival.
