Welcome to The Granary at Croft Farm. We hope the information below will be useful and provide most of what you need to know to make your stay safe, comfortable and enjoyable.
We aim to maintain high standards of accommodation and comfort for our guests. Please observe the following points to help with this.
CHECK THAT THE BOILER SWITCH IS SET TO HOT WATER AND HEATING (tap and radiator symbols)
If The Granary is too warm or too cold, the thermostat located in the corner of the kitchen over the work top may be used to over ride the pre-set programmes:
TOO WARM – press and hold the down button for 3 seconds until the temperature display flashes. Then repeatedly press the down button to decrease by one degree at a time.
TOO COLD – press and hold the up button for 3 seconds until the temperature display flashes. Then repeatedly press the up button to increase by one degree at a time.
The thermostat will revert to the pre-set programmes at the end of each programme cycle (i.e. overnight, daytime, evening)
INDIVIDUAL ROOM temperatures may be adjusted by using the radiator thermostats, but please do not set them all too low, as the heating pump will continue to pump unnecessarily.
When leaving The Granary for long periods please ensure all windows are secured and, if left open, only a fraction so that wind and rain do not cause damage.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if there are any problems. We want your stay to be as comfortable as possible!
