You have shared use of The Greenhouse Spa during your stay, where you can enjoy the cedar hot tub and sauna and you can also book a relaxing treatment with our visiting beauticians.  

No pets in this apartment. We have two Border Collies and a bee hive on the property, but they are not accessible for guests.

No smoking.

Dustbin and recycling boxes can be found by the garden gate into the owners' back garden.

There is internal access to the apartment above, so both apartments can be let together. Both apartments can lock access to the other apartment.  There is a  cupboard at the top of the stairs where you can access ironing and cleaning facilities should you need them.

Parking adjacent to the Old Stable.

Please note that the apartments are on the ground and first floor of The Old Stable and loud sound can travel (especially the TV) , so please respect the guests in the other apartment and keep sound levels low after 10.30pm. The property is in a peaceful, rural countryside location and it is this very peace that our guests enjoy.
