*      Both houses are non-smoking properties. Please respect future guests and smoke outside, disposing of cigarette butts carefully.

     Health & Safety

*      Whilst both of our houses have charm and character, they were built before the days of damp proofing courses and cavity insulation. As a result sometimes damp patches or mildew may appear despite the best intentions of the cleaners. As traditional properties there are some uneven tiled floors and low beams. Please remember that cottages in the country do attract cobwebs. It does not mean that the cottage is dirty or has not been cleaned as country dwellers will tell you webs can be spun almost as quickly as they have been cleaned away.

*      Both properties are self-catering, this means that you will need to bring your own provisions. Basic supplies of toilet rolls, wash up liquid and dishwasher tablets are provided but you will need more. A welcome pack can be provided on request.
