Essentials such as tea, coffee, salt, pepper, washing up liquid, toilet rolls and dishwasher tablets are also provided.
The only additional charge is for electricity on a "pay-as-you-go" key. At least £5 will be pre-loaded for your arrival, and this can be very easily topped up at the local supermarket (less than 1 minute away). Electricity is charged at the same rate as a standard domestic supply. During winter lets, you will need to buy extra logs for the wood-burning stove.
It should be noted that during very cold weather, the only room that can prove difficult to heat is the kitchen.

It has a diverse range of indepedent shops, as well as a Tuesday and Saturday market. There is also a sizeable Co-Operative Supermarket tucked away in the heart of the town.
