Nuts & Bolts

The Old Lifeboat House has been beautifully and lovingly renovated to a high standard. We have tried our utmost to keep the character of the cottage intact, whilst offering comfortable living accommodation in order for you to enjoy your stay in lovely surroundings.

We will send you pre-arrival information, directions and your key safe code before your holiday. On arrival, you will find a comprehensive information folder, along with your car parking pass and a bottle of wine to welcome you. We only live ten minutes away, so we can be available in the event of any problems during your stay and of course you are welcome to call us if you have any questions.

Up to 2 dogs @ £5 per night/£30 per full week. More dogs be considered after discussion. We are not breed'ist, so any breed is very welcome. Basket of goodies, including blankets and towels for our canine guests. We do ask that dogs are kept off the furniture and not left alone please.

The Old Lifeboat House runs on the ethos of 'Please leave the cottage as you would expect 

to find it'. However, we personally go through the cottage from top to toe between bookings.
