Notes for guests
Heating: There are wood burners in both sitting rooms and a supply of logs is provided. Radiators are powered by the wood burners and solar panels. Two of the showers are solely heated using the wood-burning stoves. Stoves will need to be lit an hour in advance and shower times kept to a minimum to accommodate all guests.
Bedding/linen: All bedding supplied: mattress covers, bottom sheets, duvet covers, blankets, 2 pillows and pillow cases.
Parking: There is parking for up to eight cars under 30 metres from the bunkhouse. There is an unloading place a couple of metres from the bunkhouse. The route between the parking area is unlit and uneven so please take care.
Garden: The bunkhouse does not have a private garden but guests can make use of the orchard to the left of the house or a kitchen garden alongside nearby old buildings where there is even a barbecue area. To the front of the bunkhouse is a large graveled area with table.
