Your accommodation is situated in a picturesque setting and provides a unique and relaxing holiday environment. It is superbly equipped and beautifully styled so what could be more enjoyable than watching the sun set over the trees from your private balcony.

Oven & Grill

The Oven (electric)

The oven is heated by two elements, one at the top of the oven and the other underneath the floor of the oven.
To heat the oven, turn the selector switch to the required function. The control panel illumination and oven light will remain on. Then turn the oven temperature control to the required temperature. The oven indicator light will immediately come on and will remain on until the oven reaches the set temperature. This light will then automatically go on and off during cooking as the oven thermostat maintains the correct temperature.

Food should not be placed on the floor of the oven.

For gas ovens, turn the oven selector to the desired position and depress either the knob or the igniter button to light the gas. Hold the knob for five seconds before releasing it.

The Grill (electric)

Select the cooking method by turning the control knob to select the required grill setting. The interior light will come on and the grill is ready to use.

For grilling and toasting use full-width grill setting, the half grill is suitable for small quantities of food as only the inner part of the grill will heat up. Once you have chosen the required setting, the indicator will light and remain on until the required internal temperature is reached. The indicator will go on and off throughout cooking although the grill remains on. To turn the grill off turn the selector switch to position 0.

For gas grills, follow the procedure for gas ovens using the grill selector.


Whilst the area is widely regarded as one of outstanding natural beauty we would remind guests that extreme care should be taken when walking. You should always keep to the established footpaths. Small children should be supervised at all times.
