House Rules


Respect the neighbours at all times, especially in regard to loud noise and music in the courtyard which will not be tolerated above an acceptable level or at inappropriate times.

Use soft shoes inside the house and leave walking shoes and boots in the kitchen tiled area.

Do not wear heeled shoes in particular in the bathrooms as this will damage the vinyl floor covering.

Clear up any spillages immediately. Most types of cleaning products are stored in the kitchen. If you are unable to remove a particular stain, notify us at the earliest opportunity.

Make use of the optional stair gates provided for the safety of young children and pets.

The Hot Tub hours of use are 11.00 a.m. to 10.00 p.m. Please keep noise in the courtyard after this time to a minimum. If you are not planning to go out in the evenings, moving inside after this time will help to keep noise within acceptable limits* (the property is fairly well insulated from noise within, due to the stone walls and double glazed windows and doors). 

No candles to be burned anywhere in the house, unless there is a power cut, as this invalidates our insurance. In case of a power cut there is a torch in the kitchen and one on the windowsill at the top of the stairs. The electric consumer unit is located in the cupboard in the ground floor en-suite bathroom. If a bulb fails and trips the lighting circuit, please check the consumer unit first and reset any tripped RCD’s prior to contacting us.

Use coasters and place mats provided on dining room and lounge furniture. Coasters are also provided in every bedroom.

Do not bring bikes into the house. There is a bike rack for three bikes in the secure courtyard.

If using a disposable barbeque please do not place directly on the decking as it will leave scorch marks. A barbeque stand is provided for this purpose.

Our Sky subscription includes catch-up TV, Sky Cinema and Sky Sports HD which are all available to our guests at no extra cost. Any purchases made via the Sky Store will however be deducted from your security deposit. 

* If at any time we get complaints about inappropriate noise, loud music, or antisocial behaviour, we do reserve the right to ask guests to leave the property which may also result in the loss of your security deposit. If a visit by the caretaker is necessary to control any of these issues then this cost will also be deducted from your deposit.
