Guests are required to vacate the property by 10.00 am in order that we can prepare the property for incoming visitors.  Guests should leave the property tidy, empty all bins and turn the heating off prior to departure.  Keys should be returned to the key drop box located near to the key safes in the alleyway next to the office.

your safety

Guest safety is our prime concern and to this end we ensure that we follow all guidelines in respect of Health and Safety and Fire Regulations.  We are a member of PASC (Professional Association of Self Caterers) and keep up to date with changes in legislation as they arise. 

Guests are required to familiarise themselves with the evacuation procedures in the event of a fire – these are displayed near the front door and in the guest folder.

All front/back door locks are fitted with internal thumb turn latches as required by Fire Regulations, this will ensure ease of exit in the event of an emergency.  This means that doors have a key to open them from the outside and a thumb turn latch to lock/open the door on the inside.  There is only one key needed which will open both the front and back doors. 

Smoking and vaping are not allowed in any property. 

Candles are not permitted in any circumstances – guests must not bring, use or burn candles during their stay.
