Your Useful Tips guide to a smooth holiday with us.

You are all booked and ready for your holidays.  I have put together this ‘Useful Tips’ guide which will answer some of those questions that you forgot to ask.

Two weeks before you are due to arrive, you will receive an email giving you some extra information about your stay.  This includes the directions to our cottages from Burythorpe village, as SATNAV leaves you two minutes away. Options for online shopping for your groceries and access details to the cottage.



Indoor shoes/slippers

We recommend having indoor shoes/slippers.  The kitchen area and living room is a wooden floor.  Everywhere else is carpet in The Granary.  The Mistal is all carpet apart from the conservatory which is tiled.

Car parking

We have plenty of space for cars, the car park holds four cars, extra parking is available on the edge of the turning circle.


Bring your bikes if you fancy exploring, we can store them in our locked garage.


We have a Barbecue available with both cottages.  We recommend buying the large disposable bbq trays so they can be thrown away after use.


Both cottages have a washing machine, Clothes line, wash basket and pegs.  We don’t supply washing powders or softener due to preferences and allergies.

Eating Out

If you are thinking about eating out, we have a good choice of pubs.  We would advise ringing to book a table in advance as they are all popular. Have a look at my blog Eating Out Locally .
