Upstairs there is a bedroom with a double bed and the second bedroom which has bunk beds.We provide lots of entertainment including DVD's for all ages, books, board games and some childrens toys.The parking space is suitable for up-to a medium sized car like an Escort, Astra etc. The largest car we got in there was a Vauxhaull Zafira. The bunk room is most suitable for children or smaller adults; these beds are normal length but slightly narrower than a standard single (they are 2ft 6'' wide). More
