  • Departure is at 10am. We don't expect you to leave the house as you found it- its your holiday after all! However you must ensure that all rubbish is taken out the night before  If you could strip used beds and put the linens beside the washing machine that would be greatly appreciated as our turnaround time is limited.
  • Waste- there are green everyday waste bins and blue recycling bins at the side of the house. They are collected weekly on a Tuesday. You should put any bin that needs emptied in front of the fence.
  • There is oil central heating. With oil prices this is a very expensive form of heating and we would be appreciate it if you did not waste it. It will be on when you go in. The boiler is in the utility room and will be set for the appropriate time of year. If you need to override these settings and switch on the heating please do so however please bear in mind that oil is supplied by an oil tank and can run out- if you use the heating excessively it may run out causing damage to the boiler. We have contracted deliveries of oil based upon normal usage so in normal use it will not run out. If before arriving you let us know that you would prefer the heating on all the day and/or night we will adjust our oil supplies accordingly. There would be a charge for this of £100 which represents the additional oil that will be required. If you have special requirements that necessitate the heating on continually you MUST let me know in advance.
