The bathroom, with bath and shower over is also on the first floor while the large bedroom with double bed and plentiful storage is on the second floor. The bench in front of the cottage offers a good spot to sit in the sun and enjoy a coffee or glass of wine. It is possible to park in the street within a few meters of the cottage although there is not a designated parking spot and there is a maximum stay of one hour during the day. Free parking is available in nearby streets and there is a paying car park (free overnight) opposite. There are also residents permits you can purchase from me at £2 per day. The surrounding area is largely flat and can be explored on the two bicycles provided with the cottage. Please note use of bikes is entirely at your own risk. Dogs (and cats) welcome but extra charge of £5 per night per animal to max £25 per week.More
