Additional Information

The additional information below will help answer some frequently asked questions about the accommodation and facilities at Westerclose.


Westerclose has its own private supply of beautiful spring water which is regularly tested and approved. We are trying to reduce our use of plastic at Westerclose and therefore encourage guests to drink our spring tap water rather than drinking bottled water. If you do bring water bottles, we suggest you just bring one per person and refill them from our spring tap water each day.


The cost of electricity is included in the price of the accommodation.

Heating and hot water

Pennycombe has oil-fired central heating and hot water.

Barn Owl, Nethergate & Stable Cottages have electric convector heaters. Hot water is heated by off-peak electricity overnight.

The cottages have wood burning stoves – logs, kindling and firelighters are available as required with the initial basket of logs free of charge, additional logs charged at £3 per basket.

Heather View has oil fired central heating with a log-effect electric fire in the living room for supplementary heating.

Linen and cleaning materials

All bed linen and duvets are provided. Please bring your own bath towels as we are not able to provide these due to COVID-19 restrictions. Anti-allergenic pillows and duvets are available on request (ideally with your booking information please).

Cleaning materials, hand soaps, kitchen linen, tea-towels and an initial supply of washing machine liquid and dishwasher tablets are all provided.

Other facilities

A Cot and high chair are available on request free of charge.

There is an excellent drying room with tumble drier, clothes airers, rotary washing lines and coat and boot racks. It also contains a deep freeze for guests’ use.
