Accommodation Details

LIVING ROOM: well appointed room with open fire for which, unlike some other properties, we provide not only the first basket of logs/coal but unlimited supply thereafter.  Free unlimited wi-fi, digital DAB radio with bluetooth streaming, Blu Ray DVD player and LED 3D Cinema TV with Freeview.  There is also a selection of books covering a wide genre of tastes and an array of local information.  Note that the property has electric underfloor heating which can be controlled from the panels on the wall in the living room and in the hallway.


KITCHEN:  small but perfectly formed (galley) and equipped for all your needs.  Fridge, washing machine, oven/dishwasher & microwave. In addition to the underfloor heating, there is also under cupboard remote controlled plinth heating for extra warmth on those chilly winter days/nights.  There is also a Tassimo coffee machine so you can still get your fix of Costa coffee!


BATHROOM:  fitted with an electric pumped shower for a powerful, envigorating shower.   We use Scottish Fine Soaps in our bathroom, and provide an ample supply of hand wash and hand lotion, as well as shampoo and conditioner.

SINGLE BEDROOM:  single victorian brass bed, chest of drawers and hanging hooks fitted behind door.


HALLWAY:  vintage church pew provides seating with storage baskets underneath.  Coat hooks above.


GARDEN:  outside you will find a beautiful country cottage garden with fresh mint, gooseberries and rhubarb growing. If you are lucky enough, when the season is right, you may also find a pot of our own homemade preserve using

the garden's ingredients in your welcome basket!  There is a lovely patio area with gorgeous rattan furniture for those lovely summer mornings enjoying a coffee and taking in the views.   There is a delightful summerhouse which occupies an elevated position on the top level of the garden to wile away sunny afternoons.  This can also be used for the storage of bicycles, golf/fishing equiment etc. that you may wish to bring with you.  There is also a picnic bench up there and a gas BBQ is provided. Note the garden is fully enclosed so dog proof!
