House Rules

If you need to cancel your booking we charge a 10% cancellation fee.
If you need to check out early we refund minus 10%

We are a non smoking household, but there is seating outside.
We have a small dog, a wiry coat Lake land terrier.

I will do laundry but not your ironing
The bedding is changed once a week and I vacuum once a week.
You will have to keep your own room tidy and sink, window and window sill clean, empty your bin,
sort your washing and clean up after using the bathroom.
You are also expected to take turns setting the dinner table and clearing it up again.

There is a sink in your room but you share the bathroom with another guests, so you have to be social about the time spent in there; no very long showers (there is no unlimited supply of hot water) and only take a long relaxing bath when you are sure you have the time to yourself.

We eat breakfast together or you may prepare a lunch pack. We will eat dinner together, and I will discuss with you your likes and dislikes about food, so you will enjoy my cooking.

There is a kitchenette you may use if you want to do some of your own cooking, always clean up after use.
I prefer no food in the bedrooms but if you clean up and keep things neat and tidy it is allowed.

You can lock your room, and I am the only one who has a set of spare keys, I will always knock before entering.

You can spend the evenings with us or in your room as you wish.

For under 18's there is a 11PM curfew.
From 18 to 20 year old there is a 1AM curfew.

We will help you find your way around and integrate you in our daily routine, help you get your bus pass etc and show you places of interest, You are very welcome to come along on our family outings if you please but you will need to pay for your own entry tickets if required.

We have two guitars available for use.
Quite a selection of books.
And you are welcome to do some paper mache art work with me if you fancy.

My husband is a wiz on the computer, so any technical problems you might suffer; he can probably help you solve.

I walk everyday with our dog, you are very welcome to join me, good shoes and wellingtons are advised,
we live in beautiful countryside but it can be muddy at times.
