Our 3 en-suite bedrooms, self contained flat and dining room are spread over 2 floors. We are not able to install a lift, but if you ask us on booking we will try to make sure that you are allocated a room on the ground floor. The dining room is on the 1nd floor but for guests unable to climb stairs breakfast can be served in your room. Please let us know if you have any special requirements. Special requirements include allergies - non feather beds etc.
The dining room is located at first floor level with twelve stairs leading up and a banister rail on the left hand side going up. At the top of the stairs a door leads through the Lounge into the open plan dining kitchen. There is a small step up to the dining area.
All bedrooms have the following:
