Wifi via satellite broadband is now available. Please note that although this is fast, there is a lag time due to the distance from the cottage to and from the satellite and base station. As a result, this facility is not recommended for video conferencing, live streaming or gaming. We limit usage to 5GB of data per stay, this is due to the high cost of providing the service. That’s more than enough data allowance for browsing, social media and email. If you require additional data there is a small charge, just let us know.


You can receive incoming calls on 01450 880 760. If you need to dial internationally, you should probably use a calling card. We can supply these if required. Alternatively, e-mail the person you want to speak to and ask them to call you back, otherwise, we have an honesty box beside the phone. Large use of the telephone line will be charged at check out.
