The space
The 1859 house was creatively restored by the Hosts (who live next door) in 2019 to ensure you have a fantastic stay in a warm stylish home. The house consists of a large light bedroom with king size bed and original features plus a large second floor bedroom with twin beds giving flexibility. There is also a sofa bed in the lounge if required, or a spare very comfy inflatable single mattress for use in either bedroom making it sleep 3 rather than 2. There is a family bathroom with bath and shower and a separate shower room also with toilet and sink. The ground floor has a fabulous lounge with smart tv /dvd player/x-Box and comfy seating.This leads through to a dining area that has games, books and lots of local information, all wrapped up with the 1859 Houses' original features mixed with local art and engaging vintage . The unique kitchen has lots of facilities including washer, dryer, dishwasher double oven and hob, fridge freezer and unit for hanging all that outdoor gear. The kitchen is also stocked with a basic larder and your host will contact you to see if you would like other provision ready for your arrival. There is also the option of a garage to lock away cycles or bikes ( from May 2020) . With prior notice you are also welcome to share the large garden space with the owners and their two cats.
Parking is on street outside the house, in the quiet residential road.

Guest access
The only shared space is the rear garden - with notice to Barbara.

Other things to note
COVID 19
We operate to a high level of cleanliness and have now increased sanitization also. We provide hand gel and wipes for your use but there is a full COVID 19 cleaning policy in the house also.
We are now minimising some of our soft furnishing and hope you can appreciate this as some are hard to keep sterile. We have left books, games and DVDs , but ask that if you use them you leave them in the kitchen on your departure so they can be cleaned. Use is at your own risk.
We are also asking guests to stop beds and pop used bedding towels, bath mats etc in the bags provided on departure.

All bookings must be made by one of the group who will be staying in the house,( as per Airbnb t&c's persons must be over 18 to have an account) No bookings can be accepted on behalf of a third party, unless through a booking agent.
We can provide a high chair and stairgate for our younger guests ( there is also some socket covers for use, as well as a microwave steriliser)
