What you need to know when you arrive

Welcome to The Rings Cottage

Holidays are precious times spent reconnecting with friends and family. We hope that your holiday here will be full of special memories.

The following is some information which we hope will tell you all you need to know. If you have other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Landline phone

There is a landline phone located in the external building where the laundry facilities are. If you are occupying the full property this can be moved into the house on request. The phone is for emergency use only. It will also receive incoming calls the number is 01334 828 291. All calls are itemized and if there are charges these will be due for payment.

Septic Tank

Please be aware the toilets empty into a septic tank system.

You must not flush feminine hygiene products or contraceptives down it. The system is only suitable for soft tissue and is easily blocked. 

Only use approved cleaning products. Misuse will cause blockages and be both inconvenient and costly to rectify.


All televisions have in-built  DVD players. If you would like to borrow a DVD from our extensive selection please ask. To switch between the TV and DVD please use the “source” button on the remote control.


Laundry facilities

We are pleased to provide washing machine and tumble dryer along with two sinks in the external utility room which is left open for your convenience. There is also a small ironing board and iron.Instructions are available if required.

Pet & wellie wash

Please take time to read the section on pets in our terms and conditions documentation.

We hope you love our rural setting as much as we do and we appreciate that countryside walks can be a muddy affair. We’ve provided an outdoor wash area for pets or muddy boots. There is an external tap which runs cold water. If you’d prefer some warm water you’ll find a basin in the laundry to enable you to bring some out. There is also a brush, both are clearly marked for this use.


Bins are located behind the outdoor laundry and storage building. There is a plastic bucket in the laundry area for any glass and bottles.

  • Blue bins are for, general waste.
  • Grey/Black is paper
  • Green is for plastics and tins.

Bins are placed at the roadside on a Tuesday night for collection on a Wednesday.


If you have an emergency:

There is a landline phone located in the External Laundry. In an emergency dial 999  or for non-emergency medical support call NHS 24 on 111

If dialing from a mobile phone use 112 which allows the emergency services to locate you by satellite.
