You can relax in front of our wood stove in the living room.

We also provide a mirror and a hairdryer and towels for two guests. Coffee and tea making facilities are provided in the room, as well. There is access to shared bathroom next to the room and we try and keep our use of it to a minimum when guests stay but it is our family home. There is a separate shower and cast iron bath and heated towel rail. If you are staying for a few days we can give you a key to the side door so they can come and go as please. Guests can relax in our living room and we are happy to chat if we are around and not busy. Breakfast is served in our kitchen we leave out a selection of cereals juice fruit etc. Sadly we do not provide cooking facilities but there are several good local restaurants and pubs we can suggest nearby, which are only a short drive away.
We really enjoy meeting travellers but are happy to give you space and peace if required. Please ask if you need any further information or guidance. We are also happy to wash clothes in our machine for a £5 fee per load.
Interaction with guests
We prefer to meet our guests when they arrive and have a quick chat, but are happy to let you do your own thing. We have a selection of tourist leaflets in our guest room but we are happy to advise on local attractions, eateries and transport. We do enjoy listening and finding out what adventures our guests have been up to. At all times we ensure privacy for our guests.
We like to know exactly who is staying with us, after all it is our family home. Please treat out home with care. We have space for a maximum of two guests only. We do not provide cooking facilities. The bathroom is a shared space so please keep it tidy.
That's it enough rules we reckon.
