Weaver’s Cottage Conditions

Please take a moment to read through our house conditions. They help explain some of the cottages dos and don’ts.

Breakages

We understand that sometimes accidents happen! Should you break anything please let us know immediately – if it is minor we usually won’t charge. If it’s a larger issue (e.g., the TV screen!) we would like to agree the cost with you before you leave to avoid any issues later. The amount will then be deducted from your good housekeeping bond. 

Smoking Policy

Smoking and vaping is not permitted in the house. Cigarette butts must be discarded in the cigarette boxes that you will find attached to the outer walls of the house. 

Please note that if cigarette butts are found in or around the grounds of the house then a charge will be incurred and deducted from your refundable bond. This will also apply if it is felt that cigarettes have been smoked inside the house.

Pets

We appreciate the importance of bringing along a man’s best friend (we have several dogs ourselves and take them on holiday too, so we understand) and that many your pets will be allowed on furniture in your own home. However, we ask that you DO NOT allow pets on sofas or beds. Over the course of the year hundreds of guests visit us and amongst those there are guests that maybe allergic to pet hair. We strive for all our guests to have as comfortable stay as possible and so to eliminate pet hair on furnishings we ask for all four of your pet’s paws to stay firmly on the floor. 

When leaving your best friend in the house alone we please ask that you use the dog crate provided to help contain any accidents. 

Please let us know if you would like a dog crate erecting prior to your arrival and of what size you would require. We will happily have this ready for your arrival. We are happy to check for you the size required for your breed of dog if you are unsure. 

At Weavers Cottage we accept 3 dogs.

Dog rocks and dog waste

Dog rocks – https://dogrocks.org/

We want the gardens to look as nice as possible for you and future guests, the dog rocks are intended to eliminate urine burn on grassed areas. We kindly ask that you clean up after your dog/dogs and pick up all waste left by them as this would be rather unpleasant for the next guests especially if they have children. Dog waste bags are also provided under the sink in the utility area. We find that it is best cleared up immediately to avoid forgetting about it.

It may be the case that if we do find that dogs have been on the furnishings or that dog waste is left in the grounds, a charge could be deducted from your cautionary deposit. 

Bedding

We know how important a good night’s sleep can be and we endeavour to provide you with the very best quality bed linen to experience that. However, we have had some guests that have left us with some pretty nasty stains… these include… wax crayon, felt tipped pens and even permanent marker pens! There has also been an array of what would appear to be food stuffs, such as pasta and curry sauce, egg yolk, chocolate, and boiled sweets stuck to linen, towels and throws. The worst offender has been tanning lotion and make-up. 

Sun cream, fake tan, make up, nail polish and hair dye can cause permanent damage to bed linen. We kindly ask that you do not allow these products to come into contact with bedlinen. Pen and felt tipped pens, spilt drinks and food stains can also cause permanent damage to bed linen. We kindly as that children are not allowed any of these in their bedrooms.

Costs to replace bed linen:

1 x pillow slip – £6.54

1 x king flat sheet – £43.56

1 x king duvet cover – £66.79

1 x single flat sheet – £26.13

1 x single duvet cover – £55.17

Should bedding be found in an unacceptable state whereby stains cannot be removed and returned to the 5 star standard you found it in upon your arrival then a charge may be incurred and deducted from your returnable bond.

Please note that we do not use feather or down duvets or pillows.

Guest Numbers

No party, event, or gathering may take place at the property which exceeds the maximum agreed occupancy numbers for the property without prior consent. This also includes visiting guests that are not sleeping at the property. Failure to adhere to this will result the owner terminating the hire of the property with no refund.

Leaving the Property

Please take special care to lock doors and windows each and every time you go out.

Recycling

Your assistance with the correct recycling would be very much appreciated. Our Local Authority have a strict protocol in regards to recycling and making sure the correct item is placed in the correct bin. If this is not followed it could result in the bin not being emptied and or even a fine for us. We have left helpful reminders within the cottage to assist you with this and let you know what items go in which bins. 

Here is a helpful reminder:

Grey Bin – General rubbish 
Blue Bin – Cardboard and paper
Brown Bin – Plastic bottles and plastic containers. Please follow recycling instructions on the products and refrain from putting plastic bags and wrapping in this bin. Please could you wash out bottles and food containers. 
Purple Bin – Glass bottles and jars. Please could we ask that you wash the jars out. 
Red Bin – Tins and aluminium
Pink Bin – Used for dog waste and nappies

Your bin collection day is on a Tuesday, so we would appreciate it if you could empty your bins on a Monday evening ready us to put your bins out. Please do not put any food scraps, dirty or smelly rubbish in the recycling bins. Incorrect disposal of refuse is an unpleasant task for the housekeeper that takes up unnecessary time to correct and in addition, as previously stated will incur a charge from the Local Authority when items are not in the relevant bin – this charge will be transferred and deducted from your bond repayment. 

We check the outdoor bin daily when visiting the hot tubs and empty if necessary. Please empty the house bins regularly into the outdoor bins (there is no need to put the outdoor bins at the side of the road as we will attend to this).

Safety

We want to you have a safe and happy stay so we ask for safe supervision of children at all times.  Please take into consideration the following: 

  • Please supervise your children at all times
  • Please be aware of the steps around the grounds, an uneven level may pose a risk
  • Please use the gates accordingly at the top and bottom of the stairs

Septic Tank

Due to having a septic tank, please ensure you dispose of all sanitary wear in the paper bags provided. There will be signs in the bathrooms that will inform you were these are. There is a pedal bin in each bathroom for disposal of the paper bag. 

Cautionary Deposit

There is a cautionary deposit payable during your stay with us at the cottage. This is £200. It is a fully refundable deposit and will be returned to you within 7 working days of your departure providing that the cottage is left as you found it with no damages. 

Hot Tubs

Please take a moment to read through these Hot tub Dos and Don’ts; they are in place for your safety. The hot tub must not be used between the hours of 21:00 and 08:00. 


DOS 

  • Shower thoroughly with water, no soap before using the tub to remove hair products, oils, creams, lotions, make-up, deodorants, tans etc… which will seriously affect the water quality if not removed (outdoor showers are available from late spring to early autumn, indoor showers to be used for the remaining seasons). Please ensure to shower in swimwear as laundering products also affect the water quality and note that if hot tubs become contaminated or are used inappropriately then the water will be drained and not reheated
  • Tie all long hair up securely in a bun to avoid hair becoming entangled in the suction inlet of the hot tub.
  • Take care when entering and exiting the tub to avoid slips
  • Supervise children at all times in the area of the tub
  • Use the toilet before entering the tub – not leaving the tub to use the toilet will seriously affect the water quality
  • Limit your time in the tub – to a maximum of 15 minutes to avoid dehydration and allow the chemicals to re-sanitize the tub (the tub can be used again after 15 minutes)
  • Consult your GP before using the tub if you are pregnant, suffering from any form of heart disease, circulation problems or any serious illness
  • If pregnant do consider that, soaking in a hot water for long periods can harm your foetus. Check the water temperature on the LED display before entering and do not enter the spa if hotter than 100 degrees F (38 degrees C) & do not stay in spa longer than 10 minutes
  • If you feel unwell/uncomfortable, dizzy or sleepy, or experience breathing difficulties, discontinue use of the tub & seek medical advice – spa heat can cause hyperthermia and unconsciousness
  • Replace the lid after use at all times
  • Drink plenty of water  to rehydrate. 


DON’TS

  • Don’t use the tub while using or after using any drug/medication that may cause drowsiness, sleepiness, or raise/lower your blood pressure
  • Don’t allow children under the age of 16
  • Don’t immerse your head or swallow the water – this can increase the risk of infection
  • Don’t place candles on the tub. Candles are not allowed in the property under any circumstances & candle wax can damage the filter system
  • Don’t use glasses – use only the plastic drinking glasses provided in and around the tub. Broken glass is almost invisible under water, any glass found in the vicinity of the tub will result in the tub being drained to check for glass and not reheated
  • Don’t use any electrical equipment in the vicinity of the of tub
  • Don’t sit, stand or lie on the tub lid – they are not designed to support a person’s weight
  • Don’t use in conjunction with substance or alcohol misuse – spa heat can cause unconsciousness

  • Don’t allow dogs to go into the tub
  • Don’t exceed the maximum number of 6 people that the tub is designed for.
