The owners of a self-catering accommodation venue have said they are vetting visitors – despite another occasion when police were called out due to anti-social behaviour by guests.

The Post & Times reported in January that streakers had been spotted by drivers coming out of The Green Man self-catering venue at Bottomhouse, and running along the road.

Police attended the incident and gave advice to the streakers.

This was followed by the owners of The Green Man, Peak Venues, stressing it did not condone such behaviour and was strict with applications.

Now police have been called to another incident of anti-social behaviour by guests, in the early hours of Sunday, July 13.

A nearby resident, who wished to remain anonymous, told the Post & Times: "We had a group of around 11 men, aged in their 30s and 40s, from The Green Man who were obviously uncontrolled, coming across to our property uninvited.

"They were creating a lot of noise and they were drunk and disorderly. Two of them jumped into one of the hot tubs that we have, totally naked.

"We have holiday cottages and these uninvited guests were a disturbance to our guests.

"The police did move the men off our property, but as soon as the police had left the men came back, so I confronted them and asked them to leave again, which they did."

The resident added: "The police have been to The Green Man on three or four occasions – this is becoming an on-going problem.

"Everyone in the area suffers for it. I also feel that the taxpayers are also suffering from these issues as it costs to bring the police out here each time.

"It is also worrying as this is a dangerous road.

"Why should everybody have to put up with this?"

A police spokesman confirmed that officers attended the incident on July 13.

She said: "We were called to an incident in the area at 1.23am on July 13.

"There was a group of young men who we advised in relation to their conduct.

"There were two parties, a stag do at The Green Man and a hen party at another venue in the area, which had tried to interact with one another."

She added: "We have met with the owners of The Green Man who are working to monitor their bookings more closely.

"We will continue to monitor the situation and also communicate with the owners to ensure any anti-social behaviour is dealt with."

A spokesman for Peak Venues said: "This is the first I have heard about this incident.

"We have a very strict policy and have turned down many groups.

"We take pride in having stringent policies in place and we are constantly reviewing what is going on.

"We ensure that there is lots of correspondences with those who are making the booking, through emails and telephone conversations.

"We also make the rules of staying at The Green Man prominent in emails that are sent to them."
