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 – therefore it’s not suitable for toddlers or older infants.

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.
