Interaction with guests
I do not live in Belper so you will be left alone. If you need any help I'm available at the end of the phone. I also have lovely neighbours and friends nearby that may be able to assist you.
Other things to note
Parking can be tricky as it is a narrow road with limited space , especially if you arrive late at night, so you may have to park a short walk from the front door. Large people carriers and 4 x 4's can be too big to park on road outside.
There is a wood burner however wood and coal is not provided however the is often some there left by myself or previous guests. If you do need logs or coal a garage close by sells it. The cottage is fully central heated though so the wood burner is not necessary for warmth and hot water just for added cosyness.
Please respect my second home as it does contain things that are personal to me. The staircase interlocks with the neighbours so please walk as quietly as possible up and down the stairs.
This is a quiet street so please be considerate to the people that live there.
No smoking inside.
Only put toilet paper down the toilet.
No pets allowed
