Additional notes from the owner

Lettings are usually for a week, Saturday to Saturday, but please contact us if you have other requirements. There is a discount for 2 or more consecutive weeks booked together.
We have a ‘no-frills’ approach: everything works and is clean and comfortable, but it is essentially a family home, not a hotel.
One or two people can enjoy spacious living on the lower two floors; larger families and groups can spread into the upper floors. Our price structure above is based on the number of occupants. There is no charge for children under 5.
