- Notes on accommodation: Downstairs there is one twin bedroom and bathroom accessible from both the bedroom and the main sitting room.

The rest of the ground floor is a mainly two story high room for the kitchen, sitting and dining areas. The open-plan means the cook can chat to other guests as they sit on the sofa and chairs watching TV or a DVD or just having drinks in front of the wood burning stove. When the weather is good, there are tables and chairs outside and a barbecue just outside the front door. The children can run around outside as there is no road nearby, the house is down a short track.
