Occupancy

The Love Shack’s interior is fairly compact, so is suited to couples (single sex couples welcome) and singles. We welcome babies under 12 months (please bring your own travel cot & bedding), but please note that the house has two staircases and the garden is steeply sloped and unenclosed in places. We can also accommodate a well-behaved dog by prior arrangement (though please don’t leave it unattended in the house).

We can provide a lovely (antique!) highchair on request.
