During the winter months the central heating is set to go on twice a day, morning and evening. Every effort is made to maintain the cottage at an even comfortable temperature. All radiators have individual thermostats for greater flexibility of control.

Self-catering Guests: there is a supplementary charge for self-catering guests who wish to have the heating switched on for longer periods of time.

During the summer months the heating is generally turned off. Guests are asked to speak to me should they wish to have the heating turned on.

Food Service and Public Areas

I do not allow any hot food to be consumed in bedrooms.

Consumption of food in public areas is only allowed if the whole cottage is being rented for self-catering.

B&B guests have breakfast served in the main house. I will leave a breakfast order form in each B&B guest in their room. Breakfast is served from 07.30 and finishes at around 09.00.


There are two bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms.

Each bed room has an upright chair.

Each room has a double bed with feather duvet. There is a non feather duvet available on request. There is a light weight duvet available on request. I can also provide a top sheet for the beds during the summer months should the guests find the weather to be uncomfortably hot.

The beds are fitted with a mattress protector, one sheet, a duvet and duvet cover. All sheets and duvet covers are laundered prior to each guest occupying their room, and changed upon their departure. All pillows have protectors beneath the pillow cases, pillow cases will be laundered as with sheets outlined above.


All bathrooms have towel rails, toilet roll holders, tissues, glass beakers and lidded metal bins as standard. The cottage has a septic tank and guests are requested not to flush items such as nappies and sanitary towels down the toilet. Sanitary towel bags are provided, and I ask that these are deposited into the bin provided and not flushed down the toilet. Complimentary items are provided for B &B guests and I respectfully request that these are not removed from the room.
