Harvey’s Mill guests are provided with a free welcome pack that comprises wine, homemade jam, homemade bread, homemade ginger biscuits, homemade chocolate biscuit cake, fresh fruit, orange juice, milk, real ground coffee and fresh flowers.
All bed linen and towels are provided included in the price, two bath, two hand towel s and a bath mat and kitchen tea towels.
We have luxury hotel style white bed linen and towels so we do ask that those fond of fake tanning products do not apply it while in the cottage or shortly before arrival as it has proved to be practically impossible to remove from towels and bedding and can cause hundreds of pounds of damage. We also ask that the white linen is not taken outside the cottage or used on pets.
We have no gas so all water and heating is electric, we read the meter before and after your stay and charge at the E.ON cost rate per unit. The tariff is economy 10 so off-peak units are half the price of peak units. A tank of hot water is provided gratis before readings are taken. The costs are generally fairly minimal in summer £10-15 per week but obviously a little more in winter £30-40 per week when heating is required.
There are 2 mountain bikes available to guests at no extra charge (subject to availability). Safety equipment such as viz vests, gloves, helmets are provided also.
