The space
We genuinely welcome people from all backgrounds.

We also welcome any well-behaved pets you bring with you. These must all be included in your initial booking. Please tell me about the pets you wish to bring when you enquire or request to book.

(Please note this is a self-contained self-catering holiday home, not a bed-and-breakfast nor a guest house. We do not provide breakfast. Please bring your own food for your stay. )

This beautiful house is very spacious inside, with a huge dining kitchen, separate lounge, four family-sized bedrooms plus smaller 5th bedroom, and the house can accommodate two, three or four families holidaying together!

Inside, the house has been tastefully furnished, with a high standard of décor and fittings. There are lovely touches like the antique dresser in the hallway, the superb leather reclining sofas in the lounge that you'll never want to get up from, and the magnificent, decorated pine dresser in the kitchen.

The 28 foot-long kitchen is well-equipped with various fitted units, washing machine, electric ovens, Nespresso coffee-maker and gas hob, and has a large leather sofa and chairs near to the south-facing windows. There is a stunning mahogany dining table, that can squeeze in 12 guests (8 comfortably) with a set of lovely, freshly upholstered, matching chairs.

From May to September, the house is usually warm with little or no heating needed. However there are woodburners and electric heating available if required, all without charge. (Fossil fuels are not burnt in this property.)

There are no additional heating costs in cold weather that you may find in other holiday homes.

The house is also extremely well-insulated to give you extra comfort during your stay, whatever the weather conditions.

All electricity used in the house is from green sources, such as wind and solar energy and biomass.

From the kitchen, there is a door that leads directly out onto the patio.

In the south-facing lounge, there is a smaller but cosy wood burner with fully dried and seasoned wood available. There is a large Smart HD TV with Wi-Fi and Saorview. (YouTube fully accessible or use your own Netflix account). There are books to read, several games to play, and childrens' toys available at your request.

There is a mobile Wi-Fi router with 4G output. There is also a repeater/extender and this, together with the router, give very good Wi-Fi throughout the whole house, including all the bedrooms.

In terms of WiFi usage, as a general rule you can expect a data allowance of 8Gb per day.

The large, luxurious bathroom is fully-tiled, with bath, washbasin and separate shower cubicle.

In terms of sleeping:

Bedroom 1 has a king-size bed with a high-quality Revlon mattress, and with bedside tables/lockers, a set of bunk beds, fitted wardrobes with full-length mirror, coffee table and tiled ensuite power shower and WC. Access to a travel cot if required. Scenic views to the rear garden and meadow.

Bedroom 2 also has a king-size bed and a pine single bed with bedside table/locker. There are also fine fitted wardrobes and a small table or chest of drawers for placing small devices while charging. The room faces south for all day sunshine.

Bedroom 3 has a double bed, a single bed, pine wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside tables with lamps, and also faces south.

Bedroom 4 has a double bed and a set of bunk beds, fitted wardrobes and faces across the extensive rear garden and meadow.

Bedroom 5 is away from the other bedrooms and is suitable for use by older children and adults. In many similar houses, bedroom 5 would be the utility room, hence it is basic and doesn't suit every group. The room leads directly off the kitchen with its own external door to the rear garden. It has a set of bunk beds and a chest of drawers. There is a table lamp with a bedside locker/table. The washing machine is also kept in this room. Off this room is a private WC and washbasin.

There are 3-seater and 2-seater reclining black leather sofas in the lounge and two sofas and 2 chairs, all in black leather, in the kitchen.

All bedding used in the house is 100% cotton for extra comfort. It goes without saying that all bedding is freshly washed for each set of guests including under covers and covers to under pillows.

All bedrooms, as per the kitchen and lounge, have plenty of electric sockets, useful for charging appliances such as phones, tablets, laptops and toothbrushes.

The total of 12 beds will normally sleep up to 16 guests. We can provide an extra double mattress if you wish to spread out more.

From August 20th 2020, all listings worldwide on Airbnb are limited to a maximum of 16 guests. We must adhere to that limit.

Being a bungalow, all rooms are easily accessible and this as a safe space for young children and those with limited mobility.

We care about the well-being and safety of our guests. There are 7 smoke detectors fitted, including one in each bedroom, except bedroom 5. There is a carbon monoxide detector close to each woodburner. All detectors are tested immediately before our guests arrive and one or two will normally be tested after you arrive so you are familiar with the noise emitted.

This is a pet-friendly property for up to 3 well-behaved dogs. Please keep your pets in the kitchen area as much as possible. In particular, please make sure your pets do not climb on the leather sofas in the lounge and kitchen and damage them. There is a small charge per stay for pets.

For smokers, smoking just inside the rear door to the garden with door open, or just outside the front door under cover with door closed is accepted. Please never smoke elsewhere in the house, especially in the bedrooms.

The rear garden is large, open and flat with well-kept grass and ideal for all ball games.

There is a solid fuel barbecue available to use with a free supply of small pieces of wood. You are welcome to bring charcoal if you prefer to use that.

There is also a table tennis table with full accessories (net, 4 bats suitable for singles or doubles, several balls) available for you to use in the garden in good dry weather conditions.

The house lies on a quiet, leafy, lane with very few vehicles passing by.

The whole house is thoroughly cleaned before new guests arrive. Our reviews testify to this. This is a big house to clean and our standards are high and will not be compromised.

Normal check in time is from 5pm. Check out time is by 11am.

After guests leave, doors and windows will be left open for a considerable time for ventilation purposes. Common points of contact such as door and window handles, TV control, leather sofas will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. This will all be done as per the government Covid requirements for the holiday home sector. As in all respects, we aim to operate to the highest standards.

It is also possible to securely reserve the house for extra hours after the usual check out time or before the usual check in time, but this extra will cost a little bit more.

As stated at the start, we genuinely welcome people from all backgrounds.

If, for any reason, you wish to bring extra guests to those you have booked and paid for, please contact me before your stay. We will wish to provide for all the guests you bring, and will need to charge accordingly.

Many thanks for reading about our listing. We will be delighted if you decide to book with us. :)
