Frequently Asked Questions

Is the cottage heated?

Yes all heating is included in the rental. The Cottage has a very high tech biomass heating system that provides hot water and central heating, keeping the cottage toasty and warm. The guests have complete control of the thermostat and each room can be controlled by valves on the radiators. The downstairs bedroom has underfloor heating. Get the log burner going and you will not be cold!

Can I bring a dog?

Yes we welcome dogs for a small additional cleaning fee. We just ask that they are never left unattended in the cottage, or are in a crate if you go out. They do not go upstairs or in the downstairs bedroom. Please be aware that whilst the cottage garden is fenced, we do at times have sheep and cows in the field behind and any dogs must be kept under control.

Do you have WiFi?

Yes, we have super fast fibre broadband and wifi throughout the cottage and in the garden areas. All guests can access this free of charge.

Can I walk to a pub?
