The cottages have a shared garden with private BBQ and outdoor seating per cottage. There is also a separate utility room that both cottages have access to with a washing machine and tumble dryer. The owners provide a starter pack for the logs and BBQs, they also have cots and highchairs that can be requested. For your furry friends, the owners have a large utility room where there are spare dog towels, poo bags and dog bowls, and can also provide beds for the dogs. There is a hose just outside the utility area where you can wash and dry your pets after a wet and muddy walk; all dogs staying in the cottages must be kept downstairs.
