The 1st floor bedroom has a modern, slightly opulent style.
It is large and peaceful with a huge 'And So To Bed' bed with oodles of pillows and maybe the most comfortable mattress EVER! There is a goose down duvet and the luxury bed linen is 100% Egyptian cotton.
Attached is a lovely private shower room with mosaic tiles, glass vanity stand, power shower, hand held bidet, plus toiletries and lots of soft fluffy towels, kept warm by an oversized towel warmer.

The space

The house has 6 bedrooms (only 2 of which are listed on airbnb) and is brick built, about 20 years old, built in traditional in style, but with a more contemporary interior. It is tucked away down its own private drive behind a short row of houses.

It is extremely quiet and peaceful and usually the only sounds you can hear are the birds.

WIFI - there is wifi throughout the house. It isn’t superfast and the speed can vary but it is faster than using a phone with 4G!

KITCHEN - there is a kitchen diner which are also welcome to use to help yourself to hot drinks or heat up things or make light meals such as an omelette or toast, but I don’t really have much spare space in the fridge nor do I like people taking over the kitchen and doing serious cooking!
Please check with me if you would like to use the kitchen.
CONSERVATORY POOL ROOM – there is a large extension with a living area at one end and the rest is an indoor, but UNHEATED, pool. I am not currently heating the pool, so the water is about room temperature, so not as cold as the sea at Christmas, but not as warm as a municipal pool. So if you’re brave, and want a very refreshing swim (apparently cold swimming is really good for you), you’re welcome to use it. There is a nice hot shower beside the pool to warm up!

Guest access

Guests are welcome to use their room, the kitchen, the pool/conservatory and garden and deck.
If you need more than 1 bedroom, the house has 6 bedrooms altogether (but only 2 are listed on airbnb), but I'm happy to discuss renting other rooms which I can temporarily add to airbnb.

Interaction with guests

I work from home some of the time so am often around if there is anything I can help with.

Other things to note

EARLY ARRIVAL AND LATE CHECK-OUT - is often available, depending on my schedule. I'll always do my best to accommodate you! You're most welcome to leave luggage and relax in the living areas after midday if late check-out isn't available.

We had a very comfortable and relaxed weekend. Julia was a generous host letting us have access to the kitchen at any time. The bed was more than king-size and the continental breakfast was delicious. We were made to feel welcome to use the home as our own. Thank you.
