Electricity and Heating
Electricity and heating are usually included in the rental cost. However, some holiday cottage owners may charge a supplement, have a coin meter or make a charge based on a meter reading at the end of your stay and some holiday cottage owners may charge extra for logs/coal provided for open fires and wood burning stoves. Where there is a charge for fuel, this will be made clear in the holiday cottage description.
The type of heating varies but will normally be mentioned in the holiday cottage description.Heating, whether in the form of central heating, gas or electric heaters, solid fuel heating or night storage heating, is normally included in the rent during the main season but often at an extra cost during the winter months. Please consult property descriptions for details.
There may be an extra heating charge during winter months, but this should be in the holiday cottage description.
Where the holiday cottage features an open fire/wood burning stove only an initial supply of fuel may be provided, unless it clearly states that no fuel is provided. Further supplies may be purchased direct from the holiday cottage owner or locally.
Many holiday cottages have real fires or wood burning stoves for your comfort. We suggest you check the safety implications for children and pets with the owner before booking.
