Staying at the Cottage

Can we bring dogs?

Yes. We welcome house-trained dogs over a year old. We are near open water, cliffs and farm animals, so please keep them on a lead whenever they are outside.

How many bathrooms are there?

There is one bathroom with a toilet, wash-basin/sink, and a shower over the bath.

What food is provided?

This is self-catering accommodation, so will need to buy your own groceries.

We provide biscuits, milk, portions of soya milk, and tea and coffee. Please let us know if anyone in your party needs the biscuits to be gluten-free.

You will find cooking oil and some herbs and spices on the shelves. Whatever else is on the shelves depends on what other guests have left behind. We don’t provide butter or spread.

What equipment is in the kitchen?

There’s a kettle, cooker, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and a tumble drier. You’ll also find most utensils you are likely to need including teapots and cafetieres. Let us know if there’s anything missing that you would find useful.

We do provide knives and a knife sharpener, but some guests prefer to bring their own cooking knives.

We provide washing up liquid, a few dishwasher tabs and some laundry powder to get you started, but you may need to purchase more for a longer stay.

 

What linens are provided?

We provide two towels for each guest and bed linens and duvets for each bed. If you stay more than a week, a second set of linens will be made available. There are spare pillows and bed-covers in the cottage.  It may seem obvious, but please don’t take them! We have sourced organic and fair-trade towels and linens and they are expensive to replace!

What do I have to clear up when I go?

Please leave the cottage as tidy as you found it so our housekeepers have time to clean cottage and get it ready for our next guests.

What Wifi and Broadband are available?

The wifi at the cottage is free. Like many remote places it has a download speed 1MB/s – 1.5MB/s. It’s fine for email and social media and you may be able to use some streaming services, but it’s not enough for HD or online gaming. Compare the Market provides a useful table for understanding what you can do at different internet speeds.

What is the phone signal like?

Patchy – you can usually get Vodafone inside the cottage and EE outside, but coverage for other providers is poor or non-existent. If your phone supports Wifi Calling you will be fine. There is a landline phone for incoming calls.
