Access to the cottage is up a 5 steps and then a stepping stone path .
We can happily provide a travel cot for a toddler but please let us know in advance of arrival.
We provide a starter pack of wood for the woodburner; so there is no delay if you want to light up. Extra wood is available locally.
The private patio is a wonderful place to 'chill' after a day exploring the area.
We have a selection of books & DVD's if that amuses.
Bedding and towels provided.

We do not charge extra for cleaning so we ask that the cottage is left in clean condition; with dishes washed etc.

Hi. My name is Charles Frumer and I live in Somerset, UK. I play quite a bit of tennis which is great physically and socially. I live my lovely wife and we do a lot of reading, walking, and meeting interesting people. My passion is baking sourdough breads which I try and bake every week. Just never get tired of it. We hope that our guests will enjoy the apartment that we have put a lot of love into.
