Newly nearly refurbished terraced house on a narrow residential street, within walking distance of town centre and bus routes. Sleeps 5 in 'proper' beds, and can accommodate six using a temporary bed. Walk to the moors or explore the seaside (6miles)
I have just partially re-furbished the house. You will notice a couple of places where I haven't quite finished it off, as the sunshine called! I am awaiting funds to replace the kitchen and bathroom windows.
It is a normal terraced house in a narrow, one way residential street. Parking can be tight. There is a car park off Walkers Row, free at weekends, directions at house, for those with larger vehicles.
There are two bedrooms, one huge with a king size bed, one with a bunk bed which sleeps 2 in a double at the bottom and one agile person on the top. There is also a single 'camp' bed available for larger groups/families, which could go in the lounge or in the big bedroom if you are all friendly! Huge bathroom with bath and shower cubicle. Outside decking with chairs. Dining table and six chairs inside. New kitchen, with dishwasher but no washing machine.
All bedding/towels are provided, and tea, coffee, basic toiletries.
The understairs cupboard and the cupboard in the big bedroom contain all my paints and renovation materials, and should be avoided! The end cupboards in the kitchen have my stuff in them. I try to leave basic food in the cupboards in case you arrive starving late at night, please replace anything you use up eg soup/beans/pasta/sauce
Interaction with guests
I work in Rhodes, Greece, in an ambulance converted into a mobile physiotherapy clinic for part of each year, usually May to October. This means that if you arrive in these time periods, you will have to use the key safe for access. I leave comprehensive written instructions/advice sheets, but feel free to ask anything else you would like to know. I have a cleaner, but she is unable to meet you due to her work commitments. Please do let me know early in your stay if the cleaning is ever not up to standard so that I can address it.
Other things to note
There is a dishwasher, but no washing machine at the house. The carpets are cream, so either shoes off or well wiped, please.... The stairs are quite steep, and there is a step down into the bathroom, worth noting if you have children or reduced mobility.
Please note!! Our neighbours smoke heavily, and there is often a smell of smoke, particularly on the stairs, and sometimes in the bathroom and front bedroom. I provide febreeze, but short of killing them, there isn't much I can do about it...
The house has now hosted quite a few dogs, and my cat stays here with me when I am home, hence the cat flap in back door. Please note if you have severe pet allergies.
It is worth noting for everyone that Guisborough is in a bit of a technological blackspot - 3 and 4G are hopeless, and we can't get digital TV without boosters either! Personally I like pen and paper and a good book, but I probably have dinosaur tendencies....
Please place all used bedding and towels in the bath at the end of your stay and leave the house as you would wish to find it to help to keep cleaning costs down. Smoking outside only. And bring the outside chairs in at the end of your stay, please, otherwise they blow all over the yard. Well behaved pets with clean paws and no furniture chewing tendencies are welcome, but if they cause extra cleaning we will have to charge you, sorry. :( . Thanks.

Hi, I am Jane! I am a physiotherapist and alternative health practitioner [ acupuncture, neural pathodynamics and cranio-sacral therapy]. I have a clinic in the UK and in Rhodes, Greece, and I also have an ex English ambulance, converted into motor home, which I drive off to Greece in mid May with two cats, then take out the bed, put in a treatment couch, and voila! a mobile physiotherapy clinic which parks under a mulberry tree with a view of the Aegean Ocean! It's a hard life, but someone has to do it.
Happy travels, wherever you are coming from, or going to!
