Please ask if you would like linen to be provided and we can give you the contact details for the local linen supply company. They can deliver both sheets and towels to the property for your stay for a very realistic price. If you are bringing your own linen you will need to bring top and bottom sheets for each bed, pillow cases, tea towels, towels and bath mat.


Please note that this house is not suitable for more than 6 adults. Sorry no smoking inside the house.

If you are planning on partying then this is NOT the house for you.
