Satellite TV  (Freesat), PVR and DVD player,

Extras:  There are no extra charges apart from the request under TELEPHONE.

Heating: Solid fuel stove in the living room (fuel supplied), fixed electric convection heaters in all other rooms. Heated towel rail in bathroom. 

Linen/towels: Bedlinen is provided, but you need to bring your own towels.

Pets: The garden is fenced and pets in the care of responsible owners are welcome, provided you inform us at the time of booking. We assume that you will not allow your pets to soil or damage the house or its furnishings, foul the garden area or disturb livestock, and that you will accept liability for any damage they may cause.

Smokers: We would prefer the whole cottage to be a smoke free zone, but, if you are a smoker, we would not wish you to feel unwelcome. If you can refrain from smoking in the house, that would be perfect, but, if the weather or the midgies make that impossible, everyone will be safer if you regard the bedrooms as strictly NO SMOKING areas.

Telephone: 01681 700459.  You are welcome to make reasonable personal use of the telephone free of charge, but if you run up a large bill, for business purposes, a covering cheque later would be appreciated.

Wifi: free unlimited broadband.
