"No pets allowed but one of owner's kept coming in. Bad odours, but extremely good WiFi."

Our much loved terrier does his daily rounds, encouraged by our visitors, he is very well mannered, "no pets aloud", means we do not want your pets not that we are pet free, sorry.
There were two smoke alarms in the mentioned room. Our guest 'found' one which had been disabled by a sneaky smoker perhaps.
We are sincerely grateful for the comment about the stairs and realise that our advert needs to specify the height and the width and that the cottage is suited to more spritely types as we really do not want to mislead people who may find them difficult. The shower room is not large but it is perfectly adequate. We love Jeff's stairs!! The irregular hand rail and all, rigid as it is, there is a very special story as to how it came to be, not everyone gets to hear. The picture shows it's shape very clearly.
We have never had a complaint about odour in Owl Cottage, never had a complaint full stop, however, if the smell had been reported to us we could have done something. On the two occasions that I visited the guests to check that all was okay, I did not recall any smell I guess when the chimney has been rained on a little there is a slight smokey smell which I quite like!
Both rooms, one with a kitchen with in it and the other with a shower room are six meters by six meters, the doors are original and have a gap of at least half an inch at the bottom, the room is well aired with two doors, one to a private balcony and two windows. Upstairs there are four sky lights all that open, plus three small windows that do not open but have shutters and a new window that does open.
Vine grows over the window in the kitchen living room making the airy space dappled with light and cool. The previous visitors asked us not to cut it back because they liked it, again I just wish the guests had told me as it would have taken just a moment to clip it. There are at least 11 light bulbs in use in the living/kitchen area alone.
The cottages as single units are ideal for couples but they are available to large groups and families as a whole house, where we take off the insulated doors. The photographs do show the childlike feel of the room and the actual toys which given the size of the room do not make a great impact.
