Q: Will I have a key? Can I come and go as I please?
A: Yes to both!
Q: I see I'm renting a "Private Room". How much privacy do I have?
A: Quite a lot. The room is on the top floor of the house with an en suite toilet/shower.
Q: How much will I see of you?
A: Hopefully as much or as little as you like! If you'd rather your privacy we completely understand. If you want to come downstairs for a chat, to use the kitchen, or to watch TV we would be delighted to see you, hear about your trip and to answer any questions you may have about the area. We both work full time, so are likely to be out in the day, but should be around first thing in the morning and most evenings.
Q: Do I have a private bathroom?
A: The room has an en suite with a toilet, basin and shower. Should you want use of a bath, you are welcome to use the shared bathroom on the floor downstairs.
Q: What's my total booking price?
A: We don't know! With fees included, Airbnb only shows the total amount payable to the person booking. This figure should be visible after you enter your dates to check availability.
Q: Can I cook/use the kitchen?
A: Of course! You're welcome to leave stuff in the fridge too.
Q: Is breakfast included? What kind of breakfast is it?
A: We usually lay out breakfast for our guests and you're welcome to help yourselves to this. Breakfast will usually be a mixture of what we've got in the house and what we're eating (typically a mixture of cereals, muselis, toast, etc). If you're staying with us at the weekend this might stretch to something cooked as well! If you have any specific dietary requirements please let us know.
We hope this helps to answer any questions you may have - should you think of anything else though please do ask.
Please let us know your arrival time. It's a good idea to take our mobile numbers in case of delay. We try and be as flexible as possible, but both have full time jobs which we have to try and work around. We have always been able to work things out so far though!
We are quite relaxed and don't insist on too many rules. We would however ask you to remember that the property is our home, so please take care of it. We both work in the week and would be grateful therefore if you could be considerate of this in trying not to be too noisy late at night.
Guests are more than welcome to use the kitchen to cook and/or eat; but we ask that you don't eat hot or takeaway food in the bedroom.
The inside of the property is non smoking; we would just ask you to remove any outside shoes before going upstairs; and not to remove any of our belongings when it is time for you to leave us.

We are a young, married, professional couple. Relaxed and friendly hosts.
Emma: reading, travel, cookery (burgeoning jam and chutney empire), and planning how to decorate our home.
Martyn: most sports - particularly football and cricket, listening to the radio (preferably BBC6 Music or Test Match Special), film, gardening, running and cycling.
The property's other permanent residents are young Sid (born in September 2014) and baby Dennis (born March 2016) we also have a cat called Chubbs. Each of the three take turns at waking us up, but generally leave our guests alone!
