The space
Entrance via a sanitised key lock on arrival if hosts, John or Amanda, are not available.
Local information is available in the Annexe - including several options of beautiful walks into town. Up to two bicycles may be safely stored overnight if required. Please do not smoke in the Annexe.

Guest access
The ensuite room is for the sole use of guests with its own entrance. Find this on the left at the end of the drive.

Other things to note
We do have a very friendly dog but if advised in advance that a guest does not want Daisy's welcome (seeking a single pat is sufficient) we will ensure Daisy is not available on your arrival.
There is plenty of parking space, we simply ask that you park (preferably on th eleft of the drive) so that you and the hosts have access at all times.
We recommend reversing onto the drive for an easier exit.
An airer is available on request for rain soaked clothing to dry in the car port - but the rain fall in Dorset is comparitively low!
We follow Airbnb’s cleaning protocol.
