The Accommodation is completely self contained.  It offers three bedrooms, one with a double bed and two smaller ones, each with a single bed - one of which is on the ground floor next to the bathroom.   The kitchen has a modern sink, electric cooker, microwave and fridge.  There isn't a washing machine, but the owners have said that they are usually at home and will put a load of washing through their machine for you.  Regretfully the accommodation is not suitable for the disabled.

The main bedroom and the second single bedroom are upstairs, accessed through a doorway off the living room.  Be aware that the landing is narrow and that some of the ceilings are sloping, in keeping with the style of this type of thatched cottage.

The sitting room has a very efficient wood burning stove in addition to the electric storage heater.  There is a dining table with four chairs and a highchair.

You have the use of most of the extensive rear garden, which disappears down to a Woodland Wildlife pond - a paradise for newts and dragonsflies.  There is a seat at the edge of the pond for you to sit and observe.

This is a non-smoking cottage and the owners feel confident that guests will respect their preference in this matter.  In addition to the wood burning stove the cottage is heated by three storage heaters and fan heaters in each of the three bedrooms.  There is a wall mounted heater and heated towel rail in the bathroom.  There is no extra charge for electricity, wood for the stove or hot water.  Bed linen, towels and tea towels are provided at no extra cost.  There is ample off-road car parking.
