Idle Hours is very much as you see it, we aim to maintain it as an affordable whole cottage rental, re-investing any profits made from letting improve it further as we move forward. We have recently replaced the hotwater tank for greater efficiency and pressure, along with increased insulation and improved heaters allowing better year round use.
