There is a very large tank upstairs in the airing cupboard. The water heats up at night on the off-peak white meter and provides one large tank of water per day. Visitors are asked to endeavour to make this last through out the full 24 hours.  It does not provide enough hot water for endless baths, however, if it is used sensibly there should be sufficient for most purposes. Both switches in the airing cupboard must be switched on.  There is a booster switch in the airing cupboard.

HEATING (general)

The cottage is heated by night storage heaters which charge up over night.

These storage heaters can be switched on and off as required and are thermostatically controlled (dial is under the flap at the top).

More detailed installations are on the pin-board at the cottage.

The panel heaters and towel rails are not connected to this system.  They are operated via a coin meter in the garage if you should need them.

HEATING (additional)

Wenlock Stove
This is a multi-fuel stove that can be found behind the electric fire in the lounge. It burns house coal, which can be purchased in bags from the garden centre in Culgaith or from garages in Penrith.  It is very efficient and once lit will stay so all night and day if desired.  This additional heating is primarily for those staying in the early or late season or at Christmas/New Year when it can get very cold outside, so please use this additional facility.  However if it is used please take great care when emptying the ashes that are generated, there is an ash can in the garage for this purpose.
