Entrance is via a small porch into the living room, the kitchen has a dining table and there are two bedrooms - one double and one twin. The family bathroom is situated at the end of the hall, which has a shower over the bath. Due to the situation of the property, the steps and the steep garden, we recommend that the property is not suitable for young children, elderly people or anyone with limited mobility. Halsecombe Cottage kitchen is fitted with electric cooker with hob and washing machine. Other equipment includes toaster, kettle, a comprehensive range of kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery and glasses. The pantry is just off the hall outside the kitchen and has fridge, freezer, microwave and further storage space. A television, DVD player and DAB radio is provided. Wifi is available throughout the property. Electricity and heating costs are included in the price of your accommodation. Halsecombe Cottage has modern electric night storage heating in all rooms plus portable heaters for flexibility. There is an open fire in the living room; kindling, matches and one basket of logs will be provided. Additional logs can be purchased from the hardware shop in Porlock. Good quality Egyptian cotton bed linen, duvets, blankets and towels are provided for your convenience, but please bring your own beach towels if you wish to take towels with you on day trips. A small amount of tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits are provided to ensure you can have a hot drink as soon as you arrive. Salt and black pepper are always available plus two spare toilet rolls. Environmentally friendly cleaning products, such as washing up liquid and cleaner are also provided. A wooden bench and some garden furniture is provided. The cottage is ideal for walkers as the 3/4 acre natural garden gives direct access into woodlands and thereby onto the moor. In the Spring the garden is a mass of primroses and naturalised daffodils. The delights of Exmoor are literally on the doorstep and the Coastal Path is a mile or so woodland walk away at Porlock Weir. There is private parking for two cars just below the property, from there 24 steps lead up to the bungalow. You are welcome to bring your dog with you to Halsecombe Cottage by prior arrangement. A supplementary fee of £15 will be added to your invoice. Please do not allow your dogs on the furniture and do not leave them alone in the property at any time. Halsecombe Cottage is strictly non-smoking.More
