Night storage heaters are also provided up and downstairs and the cottage runs off 100% certified renewable electrical energy. The lounge also has a small desk for working, a TV/DVD player, card table, various board and children's games and a small selection of films and books.
The kitchen come dining room with its original cast iron range has been sensitively modernised with reclaimed parquet and surfaces, traditional ceramic sink, fridge, dishwasher, washing machine, oven, microwave, usb sockets and a storage blow heater. Kitchen equipment, ironing equipment as well as child booster seat and stair gate are also available for use.
The bathroom with its cast iron, tiled bath has a new skylight, fitted shower and natural cork floor. Hot water continues to be provided by a small immersion tank which is enough for two showers or one bath (it requires half an hour to reheat between uses). The house is fitted with a mains smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector.
The Main larger bedroom has twin double beds (a cot and an inflatable child's bed are also available) it looks out over the rear garden with sea view to Lundy. The front facing mid size bedroom has a slim fold-out double bed when required and the small bedroom overlooking the street has a bunk bed & an extra mattress if needed.
At this time we ask you to bring, sheets, bedding and towels with you, there is a washing machine in the cottage if you need.
The front yard area receives morning sun and the raised garden to the rear evening sun with views over fields to the coast and a clear view of Lundy Island. There is some space for kids to run around and play whilst the adults can enjoy the view. There are steps both from and rear, as well as steep steps inside due to the siting and age of the cottage.
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.
