About Raise Cottage
Thanks! You'll receive an email as soon as the property answers your question.
We serve a simple breakfast. This includes a selection of high quality teas, freshly ground coffee. (i don't have instant) and bread that is freshly made that morning. We also make our own strawberry jam every other day to serve with the bread. Breakfast is served from 6am, (4 or 5am by request) until 8.30am. as this property is really geared up for walkers, runners and cyclist. It will not suit people who wish to indulge in alcohol till late in the evening. Drunkenness will not be tolerated and your stay will be cut short. Consequently I would prefer if you are a smoker or drinker that you chose somewhere else to stay, there are plenty on offer in the village which are also nearer to the local public houses and wine bars.
