Onsite Services

  • Notes on accommodation: The cottage is beautiful with a really homely feeling, however we do feel we should point out that it was built in 1535 and it has many very large, very old beams, a couple of the ceiling beams in the lounge are quite low so, depending on your height you may need to duck. Dogs are welcome by appointment, please call to discuss. We do not allow smoking in the cottage however there is a summer house in the garden that you can smoke in. There is a washing machine in the cottage or we can offer a laundry service of washing, drying and ironing but a charge would apply. Additional charge may apply for central heating if required in summer months (May - Sept). Outside: The secure wide open garden that goes with the gite has a paved patio area with patio furniture, a charcoal BBQ is provided. A summer house - providing shade from the sun and a cosy environment for summer evenings (or somewhere for smokers if it rains) this is a totally private area for the exclusive use of our guests. The swimming pool is an above ground pool, 5.5m across, there is a security ladder (so that the pool can be kept safe for children), plenty of toys for use in the water and the pool area is fenced. There is ample car parking for 2 -4 cars, a very short distance from the cottage. The gite is within approx. an acre of dedicated garden which is completely fenced, however the whole site is 3.5 acres. We have a children's play area which includes swings, hammock, swing ball, tyre swing, platform with a slide with a childs den underneath containing a toy box etc. There is plenty to keep the kids (and adults!) occupied without having to leave the very secure garden. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Bed Linen and towels can be provided for an extra charge of £10 per person (this covers up to a 2 week stay, change of all linen available). Other: We can provide cover for storage of bikes (including motorbikes) etc.
