New photo's to come soon
We have had a wonderful 2017 season with the bungalow hired out fully from the beginning of June to the end of September, and we have had great feed backs from our hirers. The Patio and Side Gate & Fence have been completed with a path around the conservatory and a path up to the line. This will make it much easier for our members who are unsure on their feet.
We have already hired out the bungalow from beginning of June to beginning of September 2018 and one of our hirers has booked for August 2019. If you would like to hire the bungalow in 2018 or 2019 get in quick with a completed form (please contact John on 01375 679362) and a deposit to hold the booking you want, to find dates available please look at our Bungalow Calendar below. All dates marked in red have been booked.
It was agreed by the committee at the 2017 AGM that as from the 1st January 2018 the cost of hire of the bungalow will be raised to £295 per week for members and £345 non members. Nightly charge will be £55 per member and £62 non member.
We are now taking bookings for 2018 and 2019
The bungalow is fully central heated and double glazed. It can sleep up to 6 people although there are only two bedrooms. Both bedrooms have 2 single beds and the lounge contains a sofa bed. We do not supply bedding except duvet's and pillows, we recommend all bedding be brought with you. We have just purchased new mattresses for all the single beds.
Although the bungalow has been equipped with a ramp to the front door, a wide drive and a shower room, physical disabled people cannot use the bungalow if they have minimal mobility. A kitchen with a microwave, a small fridge freezer, washing machine and a gas cooker with a lovely conservatory looking out onto the garden.
We do require that at least one member of the hiring party are a member of a local Mencap organisation. Our membership is open to anyone who would like to hire the bungalow. (No pets except Guide Dogs are allowed at the bungalow).
We have a new beach hut about 5 minutes walk from the bungalow. It is open for use between April and September and is included in the price of the bungalow hire.
