                                                        Notes

                                                          • Notes on accommodation: Accommodation and facilities have been designed to allow family/friends to be independent of each other yet have the ability to cook main meals and eat together. The property is ideal if one is visiting family nearby as the property is large enough to accommodate 25/30 people for a party/reception and even more if one wishes to bring and erect gazebo. Several guests have made repeat bookings for just this scenario. Outside: There is a large lawn to the front of the property and a child secure patio and grassed area to the side and rear. There is a charcoal BBQ (charcoal not supplied) and circular table with sun umbrella & 8 chairs plus bench. The patio is secluded and gets evening sun whilst the grassed area gets it most of the day. (The property gets sun all day.) Utility Room: One wall of the utility room is a splash wall with a vertical radiator and hooks for drying wet clothes and an outside tap for muddy shoes/boots. There is sink, washing machine, tumble dryer & freezer. A WC and handbasin off this room. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All towels and linen are included. The property is cleaned and towels & linen changed weekly. For shorter rentals there is a full clean and towel & linen change after every rental. Maid service can be obtained if required at extra cost. Other: The kitchen/diner has a solid oak table which seats 8 with a matching sideboard containing all glasses mats etc. There is a second wall mounted TV.

                                                            Fabulous place, warm, welcoming and spacious

                                                            Shona A.

                                                            Arrived late in the evening to find the outside lights on and access exactly as described.

                                                            The house was warm and welcoming and even better than the pictures portray.

                                                            I stayed with 3 very elderly relatives and access by the front door was fine and once in the house everything was easy for them and myself.

                                                            The kitchen was a dream to cook in and very comfy to sit in at the end of the day exploring and plan the next.

                                                            Will definitely be back.

                                                            This is a very well equipped house, with excellent facilities. We were very comfortable and would definitely like to stay again at some point in the future.
