The Love Shack’s interior is fairly compact, so is only suited to couples (single sex couples welcome) and single guests. 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 don’t accommodate toddlers or older infants for these reasons. We can provide a lovely (antique!) highchair on request.

We can also accommodate a well-behaved dog and we make a small charge for this at booking.
