Gran's Cottage is equipped to a high standard with dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge, freezer, microwave, ceramic hobs, electric oven, toaster and coffee machine.  The bathroom includes a bath and in-bath electric shower. Gran's has electric storage heaters throughout, together with a wood-burner in the living room. Hairdryer and iron included.

Beds, linen and towels

Gran's Cottage has two bedrooms with double beds (these are attic bedrooms so the ceiling does slope but this adds to the charm of the cottage!)  Beds are made up on arrival with high threadcount eqyptian cotton sheets. Large, soft bath towels, hand towels and tea towels are also provided.



Dogs are welcome in the Cottage and indeed, the enclosed garden and surrounding location is perfect for them. We do charge an additional cleaning fee of £25 for dogs and this is on the condition that they are kept downstairs, kept off of the furniture and that you bring their own beds.
