Other things to note
We have lots of local tips we can tell you all about.
Our area is a conservation area. Our house and the 2 next door form 'Brooklyn Villas' and are Victorian properties. Our neighbours are all lovely. It's a very close, friendly local community so we ask that you are respectful to our neighbours and keep noise outside down after 10pm and before 8am. The neighbours also have children. The house is therefore not suited to large parties.
Small family gatherings and dinners are absolutely fine of course and inside there is sonos for music.
There are plenty of games in the house which we leave for all visitors and guests.
There is also a trampoline which we ask is zipped up when in use. Please supervise children on this we cannot be held responsible for accidents that occur!
We can leave our bikes for you if you require them or arrange hire of bikes for groups. Please use helmets provided.
Parking restriction notices inform you of times and we cannot be held responsible if permits are not correctly used and penalty tickets are issued!
We take great pride in our garden and hope that you get to enjoy it too! In hot weather we kindly ask that you water the garden for us - there is a hose in the back garden.
There is a large samsung washing machine for you to use which is very simple to use and washing line outside. There is an airing cupboard (behind grey curtain) upstairs under the loft stairs for use in wet weather. Towels can also be dried here.
We will show you how to operate the boiler and heating system in the Winter months.
Smoking permitted in garden only
We have 2 cats who need to stay in the house. They only stay downstairs so doors to the lounge should be locked when you are out or go to bed - that way they will be no bother at night time.
Feeding instructions on the whiteboard in the kitchen. Food will be left for the duration for the cats... of course! They are fully vaccinated, wormed and flea'd! Ronnie is black and white, Reggie is Brown and white.
We ask that you close windows and double lock doors when you leave the house.
Virgin Media currently supply TV and internet to the house - we will leave wifi codes for this.
There are many many books in the house which you are welcome to borrow for your stay.
We leave towels in each room and will show you spares and spare bed linens in case you need them.
If you require any other local information we will happily supply this to you.
ENJOY YOUR STAY!
