The Cottage situated at the rear of our home and was originally intended to be used as a Granny Annexe but we have refurbished it so other people can enjoy the lovely Cornish countryside and beaches.
In the summer there is a 12 foot (3.6m) diameter by 2feet 6 inches deep (0.75m) above ground pool in the garden for the use of guests but it is not heated (see photos).
The proprietor works with children and her husband has a position involving trust and therefore both are the holders of current enhanced Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) check certificates.
In light of this they offer, when convenient to them, a babysitting service at a reasonable cost of £5.00 per hour.
There is no washing machine in the cottage but there is a washing machine and tumble dryer avaiable for use in the utility room of the main house. There is an iron and ironing board available.
Also because the cottage has limited space the fridge is quite small, but guests have access to a fridge freezer which is located in the conservatory which is situated close to the cottage. The conservatory can also be used to dry clothes during inclement weather.
