The cottage has stairs and is not recommended for persons who would find the stairs a challenge although we have bedding and all you need downstairs. To keep the children safe, we have a latch on the upstairs bedroom door and for the adult’s peace of mind. Pets not allowed because we don't have an enclosed area. We have all you need to explore Linton inside the cottage with books and maps.
