The area outside the front door is a lovely suntrap in the morning. Please note that there is no gate between this area and the road so children and pets must be supervised at all times when in this area.

Please contact us prior to booking for further advice if this might be an issue. The terraces are decked areas, one of which is fully enclosed with fence and gate.
