The Cottages

Don't bring the kitchen sink ...

 - click for enlargementPack the car with those books you've wanted to read for ages and leave the rubber gloves at home. We like to pay attention to detail so that you only need to bring the enjoyable bits like food, wine and the swimsuit. You'll find the kitchens really well equipped with microwaves, casseroles, baking trays (if you really must), utensils, tea towels, washing up liquid, kitchen towel, foil, cling film, those rubber gloves ... and for those whose culinary skills lie outside the kitchen, we have a barbecue for you.

 - click for enlargementFor the odd occasion we aren't basking in tropical sunshine (we like to dream) and for those cosy winter weekends each cottage is fully centrally heated. We don't make you feed meters or settle up at the end of your stay: the heating is included in the holiday price. As well as a Freeview TV you also have a DVD and access to a small free DVD library.

If you need a cot and/or high chair we'll have it ready in your cottage, free of charge. Towels will be waiting for you in the bathroom, as will soap, tissues and loo rolls. The only thing we do ask you to bring is pool/beach towels.

When you arrive you can settle down with the cup of tea and a biscuit that we have ready for you and plan your excursions. There are a couple of OS maps in your cottage to help you plan that strenuous walk or locate that gem of a pub in a hidden corner of the countryside.
