Extra Bathroom

When Abbey Guest House was converted from a family house, as part of the environmental concerns all the bedrooms were fitted with en-suite showers to save water. There is however a separate bathroom containing just a bath for guests that prefer to use this facility.

Additional Facilties

Many rooms have sufficient space that a cot can be put in place to enable a child to be accommodated in the same room. However, this will reduce some of the floor space in the room and may involve removal of the desk.

Facilities for babies include a travel cot (supplied with a clean base sheet, baby pillow and duvet), as well as a high chair, bibs, beakers and plastic feeding utensils. Guests also have use of a microwave to heat milk, etc.

A bed rail is available upon request, but guests are asked to bring their own ‘bed side bumpers’ if they require them.
