There is a smart television in the sitting room, which includes apps where you can login to your own account on sites like Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Amazon Prime.


The heating is set before your arrival so hopefully you will only need to make minor adjustments. Should you need to change the temperature you will find wall-mounted thermostats around the property. Set the temperature as you would like and it will take a couple of hours for this to adjust. The bathroom towel rail will come on twice a day.

Rubbish & Recycling

The outside bins can be found by the parking area in the courtyard. There is a black general waste bin, a green mixed recycling box, plus a separate box for glass. Please ensure recycling is clean before putting it in the bin. The green recycling bin belongs to the lady next door and is just for garden rubbish.

Property Inventory

The kitchen is well-equipped with appliances, cookware, utensils, crockery etc., enough to make it feel like a home from home. We also include cleaning products, useful items such as cling film, tea and coffee, salt and pepper, Tupperware, towels and torches.

The bedrooms have high quality bed linen, hangers, hair dryers, towels, and toilet rolls.

Care of the Property

We have decorated and equipped the house to a high specification, most items have been individually sourced. We do understand that occasionally accidents happen; please report breakages as soon as possible to give us time to replace them before the next guests arrive.


There is one allocated parking bay outside the property in the courtyard. A sign shows which bay is for which property. You will drive into The Old School Rooms courtyard on Dundas Street just before it joins Frenchgate.


We kindly request that you depart by 10am on your last day. Please leave the keys in the key box where you found them and spin the dial for security. Thank you for leaving the property in a tidy state and letting us know about any issues you experienced.
