The house has an oil fired boiler which is in the small room by the back door.
There are two portable sensor controls for the heating – one which operates the upstairs and must be placed upstairs so that the temperature reaches the set temperature, and one for downstairs which must be placed in the hall or dining room. Please set the temperate for each area using the appropriate control, and we advise leaving the sensor controls in their existing location. The radiators in each room also have individual controls.
There are also portable heaters in the wardrobes for those who need extra heating in their room. Please be careful when using these and read and follow the bedroom heater instructions. Do not cover them.

Wood burning stove
For those not used to lighting a wood burning stove, simple instructions can be found here. We provide a starter kit for you which includes logs, fire lighters, kindle and matches.
Please be careful when opening the stove when lit, so that hot pieces do not fly out and injure you. Also note that the fire surround gets hot and can remain so for some time, so please keep a close eye on children around the fire place and ensure they do not get close to it.
Note our electricity is 220 – 240 V, and our plug socket type is three pin UK type (Type G Cringles House Plug Type).
Cringles House has a six hob electric Rangemaster cooker. Note this can remain hot for some time after its use so we encourage you to be careful using it.
Zanussi Coffee Machine
In the kitchen there is a built in Zanussi Coffee Machine. For instructions on how to use please click Coffee Machine. Please be careful with the metal filter as it can be thrown away easily and there are difficult to replace.
The bathrooms and washrooms are well equipped. The main and en-suite bathrooms (with baths) have underfloor heating.
Note the bathrooms do not have electric shaver points, so please bear this in mind when deciding what to bring with you.
There is a large barbecue which is suitable for cooking for up to ten people. Please let us know if you need this.
A large commercial waste bin is near the garage. This is emptied every week.
If you wish to recycle bottles and plastics, can we kindly ask you to take these away for recycling.
