The whole cottage is heated by underfloor heating (from ground source heating) and there is a log burner in the sitting room. Electricity is included and within reason, so are the logs.
Outside there is a paved area with chairs and tables in the summer. There is a lawned area in front and ample parking adjacant to the cottage. A cot and high chair are available on request.
