We’ve been doing DIY BNB on and off for a few years now, but upstairs. A double bedroom suitable for a single or a couple, for a 2 night minimum stay. This is available on an as is basis. We aim for no more than around one booking a week, unless we are busy doing other things / have friends and family staying.
The system: we offer you a room, access to our lovely garden and home, but leave you to fix your own breakfast in the garden room. You get a private bathroom embellished with rare lustre hand made tiles for a mere £45 a night + £10 for the second person. An extra £10 at weekends (Friday and Sat nights).
Anyone that treads lightly on the planet and loves old houses and chaotic gardens, along with all their quirkiness and imperfections, is obviously very welcome, for this is no show home. In winter we mainly use the wood burner stoves for heating, unless the temperature is sub zero for prolonged periods.
Not really suitable for junk food lovers or secret smokers, or anyone who prefers air freshener or other invasive chemicals to the smell of the sea. Please don’t expect us to recycle your waste. Those are our pernickety rules.
Book through Airbnb (this is inactive quite a lot as we get too many time wasters) and pay their extortionate fees (but get millions of pounds of insurance backing) – :-), OR just drop us a line to enquire informally.
Payment is strictly up-front, and if you tell us a little about yourself and the reason for your visit, we’re more inclined to accept a booking. If you want to travel completely in secret, we’ll ensure your anonymity for a price.
