The spa is a lovely treat for the cooler months. It is in its own spa room within the pool area so that children may not access it when your back is turned. As well, there is a keyed lock to the spa room for added security.
The spa heating system is set on a timer to keep hot all day and you only have to turn on one button - for the bubbles. As the yard is north-facing you can enjoy the winter sun and even plunge into the pool if you so like. The spa seats up to five persons.
Please note that the spa room is for bookings in winter between the dates of 17 June and 19 September only and at other times by negotiation. For bookings that include the spa the manager shall come to the house once you have arrived and show you how to use the spa. It is not complicated but we prefer to show you.
At the same time any other questions that you may have about the local area or the house shall be answered as well. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SPA IS CLEANED BETWEEN ALL HOLIDAY TENANTS' STAYS.

Our cleaners do an excellent job - please check the 'Guest Comments' for reviews of the cleanliness of the house. We are lucky that our house attracts dog owners who are happy to find accommodation set up for their four-legged friend. Consequently, they endeavour to look after the house as if it were their own. Most people leave the house as they found it.
