The bedroom is upstairs (13 steps) and is carpeted. The Bee House has a king-size bed and The Hive has a super king bed or twin beds by arrangement as they are zip and link.

Fire Risk Assessment
The cottages are in accordance with fire regulations. The upstairs bedroom windows are large enough, with one window opening out completely should you need to get out in an emergency but are lockable as well from the inside, as are all the windows in the cottages.
All escape routes are clear in case of fire and there are keys for all the doors clearly in view. There are three doors downstairs, one from the kitchen, French doors in the lounge and the front door off the entrance.
Escape routes upstairs would be via windows.
The cottages have fire extinguisher blankets on the kitchen walls, and there is a smoke alarm fitted at the bottom of the stair in the lounge.
