Useful Info

Recycling and general waste

The bin store is the wooden clad enclosure at the entrance and has both a general waste and recycling bin. You have two bins in your kitchen, please help the environment and use one for each type. Bottles can go in the recycling too. 

Your nearest shops

Your nearest big supermarket is a Tesco Extra in Royston about 10 minutes drive away. A little closer by is the Spar in Bassingbourn, about 5 minutes drive away. For fresh produce from a fantastic deli, plus a local farm butchers, try Burwash Manor, about 12 minutes away by car back towards Cambridge.

The Underfloor heating

The heating is all underfloor and is set to 21 Degrees. you can adjust the temperature plus or minus five degrees with the top row of lights on the thermostat. The bottom light should always be set at the bottom middle ( the clock symbol) . Underfloor heating is slow acting so be careful, if you whack it right up then go to bed, you'll wake up at three in morning roasting!
