Guests are invited to share our sheltered and sunny courtyard and have access to our Weber gas barbecue, but we ask guests to ensure that they clean the barbecue thoroughly after use. As we are a quiet residential area we ask our guests to respect quiet time after 10.00 pm so our neighbours are not disturbed.
