Notes on Accommodation
For winter use there are electric heaters in the bedroom and bathroom and a wood-burning stove in the lounge/dining area. Children are welcome and there is a large garden area for them to run around in. We do have cats and during the summer, when the doors are open, it is impossible to ensure they do not go in the gîte. This could be a problem if you dislike cats or are allergic to them. We also have a friendly Welsh Border Collie, fencing is put up to stop the dog from intruding on residents privacy.

The gîte is accessible by wheelchair but only to the ground floor where the shower room and WC are located. The double futon is also on the ground floor in the sitting room area.

There is a garden area for use of all guests to the front and side of the gîte. We have also provided a table, chairs, sun umbrella and table linen for alfresco dining. There is also a chiminee barbecue. Guests will find ample off road space for parking to the front of the gîte. If you would like to hire a bicycle we can provide this for a nominal fee. We provide tourist information leaflets for the local area, which include both outside and inside activities. In the summer months there are many outdoor music festivals, cycle racing, motorbike and racing car meets and the summer horse racecourse at Le Dorat, which is a truly family event.
