The space
IMPORTANT

Oct 2019 Please note there is a plague of mice in the area this year worse than other years and they will be in the Bach despite traps being placed, DO NOT leave food out only in the fridge or cupboard.

You will need to provide all bed linen and towels. there are pillows and duvets on each bed and some spare extra blankets . It is a totally self catering cottage so you are required to leave it clean for the next guests (vacuum through, wash dishes clean the bathroom including toilet there is cleaning stuff under the sink in bathroom and kitchen ) and remove all rubbish (bins are by the entrance to the car park at the end of the drive) recycling is by the train station. NO ONE SERVICES IT BETWEEN GUESTS

Due to being in a remote village there are no cleaners between each visitors stay and we rely on guests to leave it ready for the next guest to enjoy.Spring time brings mice and there is really no way of stopping them in these old Baches so please only keep food in the fridge or the top cupboards or it will encourage them in and your food will get spoiled.
Winter stays May to October you will need to follow the start up and shut down instructions for the water system - if this is not followed the pipes will freeze and burst so it is very important, the instructions are in the house for arrival and I will send you a copy with check in details also. Please ask if you don’t understand them.

Guest access
Entire house and small garden is yours to enjoy for your stay
