Additional amenities & feature info
The upstairs has white painted floor boards and rugs, the stairs and lounge are carpeted and the kitchen has an easy clean hard floor. The conservatory has a terracotta tiled floor. I suffer from dust allergy, so you are assured of a high standard of cleanliness. Both the vacuum for guest use and our own has advanced Hepa filtration, and mattress protector covers are aired between each guest and frequently washed! Pillows are synthetic, duvets are 'like down' Microfibre. The double bed has a lush memory foam topper (received much praise). If you prefer 100% cotton sheets, just ask (we use both mixtures and pure cotton ones). We have recently moved next door so are available at any hour if you need us. Moonstone Cottage has a very special atmosphere, please see our reviews on this site and others to read what people have thought.
