The cottage has a whole range of facilities, including free wifi and satellite TV to cater to your every whim. If there’s something you’re curious about which is not covered below, please get in touch with us and we’ll do our best to provide it.
There is parking on site for two cars directly in front of the cottage, with electric car charging points (EV) and secure bike storage, meaning you don’t have to leave your bikes on the back of your car. All electricity and wood for the stove is inclusive, as are linen and towels. There’s a boot room to take off muddy boots from a day on the fells, along with a hose outside to wash down mucky paws! A cot and highchair are also available for our younger guests.
The cottage sleeps at least 6 people in comfort, with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. On the ground floor there is a super king bed which can be a twin with family bathroom next to it. Upstairs we have a double with en suite shower room and a twin with adjacent shower room. Both rooms upstairs have character beams.
The kitchen has a gorgeous range cooker with two electric ovens, electric grill and 5 gas hobs. There is also a microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and electric airer.
RELAXING AND ENTERTAINMENT
You’ll never be short of things to do whilst you’re staying with us. The cottage has complimentary Wireless internet access. There is also a state of the art low-energy LCD TV, with satellite TV and a DVD player. For the bookworm we have a bookcase full of books, and there are plenty of board games and jigsaws for rainy days and the whole family. There’s also a CD Player/Radio/docking station, so you don’t have to miss the football on Radio 5 live, just because you’re away. The cottage also has a number of leaflets and walking guides to help you get out and about, and the nearby St John’s Inn, in Garrigill offers good food and a nice pint. To add to your relaxation we can offer a discounted rate in a local swimming pool which can be booked by the hour for your exclusive use. It also has a jacuzzi and sauna, what could be better?
We have produced ‘Leave your wheels at home’ guides to highlight things to do locally.
The cottage has been built to be easily accessible. There are three shallow steps to the living room and if required we can provide a ramp to enable wheelchair access. The main bathroom is on the ground floor and there is also a ground floor bedroom too. These are not completely wheelchair accessible but cater for the needs of a person with reduced mobility. The ground floor bathroom has grab rails beside loo and over bath/shower. We can provide a shower stool and bath boards if needed.
Up to two well behaved pets are welcome at the cottage. Poop-bags are included, as well as Isaac’s Byre pet-tags, with the phone numbers of both the cottage and the owners, meaning you can be safe in the knowledge that if your pet was to stray, people would know where to phone to get them back to you.
We also provide a boot room which you can use to keep your pet contained at night time if you wish. As with most holiday lettings, we ask that pets are kept off the furniture and do not go into bedrooms. We provide dog towels, and mats to clean up muddy dogs too.
