WHAT WILL I FIND AT THE NEST?

We've all been there on a self catering holiday - having to buy a whole tub of salt, or bottle of oil just because you need small amount when cooking.  Or finding no washing-up liquid in the cupboard once you've finished your meal.  Or realising that there's nothing to wash your hands with, because the last thing you would have remembered to pack is a bar of soap....  Personally speaking, our family goes on holiday to RELAX and that's exactly what we want you to do.  So we've provided as much as we could possibly think of for you at the Nest.  Less weight in your luggage and less hassle for you.

 

 

 

Every Great Holiday Home Needs:

  • Central Heating throughout.

  • Free WiFi (although bear with us on the connection speed - it is the middle of the country, and superfast broadband is still a bit of a dream...)

  • Recycling facilities - paper, cardboard, glass, tins, plastic - we do it all!

  • Dedicated parking space and your own entrance and private courtyard garden

  • A really welcome Welcome Pack -  including milk, butter, home-baked bread, free range eggs from our own chickens, home-made jam/chutney, home-baked pie/cake and seasonal fruits from the garden (when available). 

  • A range of local supermarkets deliver to the door, and if you choose to arrange an on-line shop prior to your holiday, we can unpack this for you so its already in the cupboards when you arrive.

  • A comprehensive information folder, together with leaflets and a range of information on places to visit, activities, the local area, shops, restaurants, takeaway menus, taxis, emergency numbers, etc.
     

Kitchen/Diner:

  • A clean and fresh modern, fully fitted kitchen with a retro-styled fridge freezer, dishwasher,  electric cooker/hob, microwave, kettle and toaster.

  • Everything you will need during your stay, including an integrated washer/dryer and a full collection of original and retro design crockery, cutlery, glassware and utensils.

  • Open plan dining area seats 4 guests. 

  • Extras you may or may not need include a clothes airer & pegs, iron & ironing board, coolbag and picnic blankets for warm days, umberellas for wet ones,

  • The basics we sometimes can't live without like tea, coffee, sugar, cooking oil, salt, pepper, herbs, kitchen roll, cling film and foil - who wants to pack these for a holiday?

  • Also goes without saying that we provide all tea towels, dishcloths, washing up liquid, marigolds, dishwasher tablets, clothes washing liquid, limescale tablets and bin liners.

 

Lounge

  • Comfy retro-style three-seater sofa, chair and footstool.

Bedrooms​

  • All bed linen (100% cotton, 300 thread count Goosefeather and Down duvets, pillows and crisp white bedding).

  • A choice of pillow, depending on your preference - either soft Duckfeather and Down to shape around your head and neck, or slightly firmer but luxurious Microfibre. 

  • Hairdryer & Straighteners.

 

Bathrooms

  • All bath and hand towels.

  • Handwash and soap provided, as well as some loo paper to start you off.

Bootroom

  • On entering the cottage, there is a large bootroom/porch for you to leave all your wet shoes, boots and coats.  There is also plenty of space here to leave a pushchair.

  • All kitchen cupboards and toilet seats are soft close, to protect little hands.

The Very Important Small Print
