Keeping you safe

There is a fire extinguisher and fire blanket in the kitchen cupboard below the sink and we have a smoke detector and a CO2 monitor located in the hut.

Wood burning stove

This stove will safely burn wood and coal. There is a basket with kindling next to the stove and a log basket below the television. Additional logs are in the log store at the side of the hut. We use seasoned hard wood for long periods of burning.

This is the only source of heating but the level of insulation in the hut ensures that it will keep you snug and warm. We suggest you use a little coal at night and add a couple of logs. The stove is easy to light with fire lighters (which are situated under the sink) and kindling (basket), and there is no need to empty the ashes before re-lighting.


Smoking is strictly prohibited in the hut at all times. If you smoke outdoors, please dispose of the cigarette ends responsibly – please do not throw them on the grass or stub them out on the decking.
