Please do not overload the fridge freezer on arrival as this will cause the unit to overheat and therefore your food will not stay chilled which Holiday at Home cannot be held liable for. You shouldn’t need to alter the temperature during your stay.
The rangecooker has two ovens, 6 hob rings and a seperate grill.
To operate the right hand oven simply turn the corresponding thermostat to the desired temperature. There is a light to indicate when the oven is heating.
To operate the left hand oven, you will need to set the desired function as well as setting the temperature.
The gill is operated using the dial on the far left of the appliance. Please note that you need to monitor the temperature to ensure that it doesn’t get too hot.
The hob is not induction and will remain hot for around 30 mins after use.
The ovens will not operate if the clock is not set.
There is a rubbish bin in the kitchen, and an external rubbish bin to the rear of the property. Some more bin bags can be found under the sink and recycling bags are in the utility room.
On your day of departure, please leave your general waste at the bin at the rear of the property along with your coloured recycling bags.
The TV’s in the property will receive terrestrial channels as well as on demand, such as Netflix and iPlayer.
There is a washer/dryer in the utility room off the hallway.
Please read the safety information for using the hot tub. Should you have any questions about testing the hot tub please get in touch.
The hot tub will be cleaned out and filled with fresh water on the day of your arrival. You do not need to empty the water during your stay, there is an anti-bacterial treatment for the water in the hot tub.
The hot tub is set between 37-39 degrees, and you will be able to use the temperature controls to adjust. Please see the control panel on the hot tub, and use the far right hand button to cycle through the programs to operate the jets. When finished, always ensure that the tub is left on auto when not in use. Please note that the tub will not heat when the jets are set to high.
There are lights over the hot tub area, controlled from a light switch.
A lot of factors play a role when heating the water, ambient temperature, weather conditions etc. Keep the lid on the hot tub when heating to conserve the heat. There is a hosepipe in the area for the addition of cold water if you would like to cool it down or need to top up the tub for any reason.
The water is heated by circulating through the system via an inlet and outlet pipe within the hot tub. DO NOT let the water drop below its original level. If necessary, please use the hose pipe provided to top up the water level.
The water is heated via an electric heater. This warms at around 1-2 degrees per hour so the hot tub may not be able to be used until later on the first night.
If you have any issues before 5pm please contact reception on 01748 850333
If you have any issues after 5pm please call our out of hours number on 07919 451626.
