Our View

You are here to relax. Having to go to the supermarket for essential items on the first night you arrive distracts you from the very purpose of your stay, to relax. Our ‘turn up & stay’ policy supplies you with essentials, everything you need to get relaxing, immediately. Your time off is precious and we want you to start enjoying your visit from the moment you open the gate to the cottage.

The starter essentials includes the basics, no doubt you will have to visit the supermarket at some point though. For information on optional extras that make your visit easier, click here.

What’s Included

The following are supplied as part of your rate:

Electricity - We don’t have a coin meter, so you don’t have to worry about having loose change. Do be environmentally conscious though, turn off the lights when you don’t need them.

Logs - A small supply of logs and fire lighters is supplied. We will pre set the fire for you. Instructions on how to set, light, operate and clean the burner are available in the cottage. Please do not use our logs for the fire pit, use fallen branches from the wood for that.

Fire Lighting - If you are arriving late, we can light the fire for you in advance, you will arrive to a warm and welcoming home.
