We have tried to make the Ashborough’s as user friendly as possible and we certainly do not subscribe to the view that bed and breakfast guests should appear at 5 pm and depart by 10 am. If you stay for more than one night, you are welcome to make use of the facilities of the house and to use the lounge for relaxing and to have a hot or cold drink around the kitchen table.
We have tried to make the rooms as stylish as possible and with every facility that you can need.
We have no objection to showers but we do also like baths and every bathroom has a full length bath in it. The shower which is located above the bath is a genuine power shower and is pressurised by a pump in the house which gives a strong flow of water. All bathrooms additionally contain a bidet together with a basin and a low lever toilet and high quality bathroom accessories.
All rooms feature safe and secure Room Safes.
All our beds have high quality mattresses, most are Sealy but one is Vi-spring and guarantees a very good night’s sleep. The smallest double bed is a king size (Wheat) and the rest are super king sized which can also be converted into singles.
There is also a family suite (Cherry & Plum) above the garage, separate from the house which contains 2 double/twin bedrooms and a bathroom.
The larger bedroom is called Cherry (super king double) and contains a double bed which could be converted into twins and the smaller room is called Plum which contains twin beds which could, if necessary, be converted into a super king double.
Contact us for special family rates for both rooms.
Please note that children under the age of 10 are not accommodated in the main house or under the age of 6 in the family Suite.
In addition the rooms have a good size LED TV together with a DVD player, a CD radio alarm, tea and coffee facilities, hair dryer, a bowl of sweets and good quality carpets and curtains.
Outside the house you will find free parking and also an indoor swimming pool which you are welcome to use. The swimming pool has its own changing room together with swimming pool towels so please do not take the house towels into the pool.
We would ask you to note that the swimming pool is unsupervised and you must take responsibility for your own safety whilst using the pool.
There are 3 lakes in front of the house and you may fish in them if you wish. The fish in the pool are roach and carp and should be returned to the pool at the end of your session.
You are also welcome to walk around the farm although when there are crops in the fields, we would ask you to stick to the tarmac drive and if you walk to the top of the farm where the radio masts are, you can enjoy a very good view of the area. Additionally, there are several public footpaths close to the house which give a nice evening walk of 2-3 miles. We can advise you on these.
We are Dog Friendly (Kennel Provided Free Of Charge – No Dogs In The House)
There is a purpose built brick kennel at the house to accommodate dogs. If owners are willing to leave their dog in the Kennel provided please notify us of this in your reservation, just incase we have other guests who are also bringing their dog on that particular night. We do ask that your dog does not create too much noise as to unsettle our other guests at the time of your stay.
