At the rear of the house, there is a large bedroom which has bunk beds with a double bed on the bottom and single on top. The rear bedroom is usually set up for girls but can be changed to neutral colours.
The top floor is a large open-plan games room with a bouncy castle (for small kids) and scaletrix racing track. If you are bringing small kids, please let us know and we will leave toys available for use. The stairs to the top floor are quite steep so kids must be supervised at all times there and particularly while using the bouncy castle.
We can also make the following items available if you are bringing kids -
kids bikes and helmets (3 bikes which would fit ages approx 8 years - 3 years);
wet suits and booties (would fit ages approx 6 years - 3 years);
body boards for the beach;
board games, toys.
We can provide a travel cot and a high chair.
The property has underfloor heating and is well insulated so always feels warm and cosy, whatever the weather.
The property is serviced by high speed fibre internet, which is boosted throughout the house. There are two "Smart" TV's in the living area and the sitting room, where you can watch Netflix etc. There is limited mobile phone coverage inside the house (it is in a black spot for mobile coverage) but the internet is strong.
