That is a lot of good advice you have all given me!
I got the feeling people have the same priorities as myself, good food, good, practical and clean facilities. I'm not particularly interested in attracting "normal" people (or good quality customers)since we only have two bedrooms available to let (one double, one kingsize)and I don't want to fill every weekday/weekend up anyway. I know I won't make loads of money from it and that isn't the point of doing it anyway.
So this is where it's up to now:
Good comfy mattresses (tick)
One en-suite bedroom, one with private bathroom (tick) Neither with cream carpets or carpets in the bathrooms!
Lots of hot water (tick)
AGA for drying all sorts of stuff (tick)
Laundry service (tick)
Route cards (tick)
Secure bike storage (tick)
Bike washing facilities (tick)
Work shop with all the tools and stand (tick)
Good selection of high quality breakfasts (tick)
Communal honesty bar/snack area with tea/coffee making facitities (tick)
TV/DVD/Nintendo Wii/books/Magazine in the guest lounge. (tick)
Real Italian coffee from home ground beans with real milk (tick)
Super trails and fantastic views (tick)
Pint glasses in the rooms (tick)
Pub 10 minutes walk away (tick)
Friendly dog (tick)
Guiding if desired (however don't expect your beds to be made that day!!)
Wifi is a tricky one. The wireless networks aren't working very well in our house due to the increadibly thick stone walls (don't think they had wireless networking in mind in the 17th century!) but there are networking points in a lot of rooms so I might look into that side of things as it seems quite important to a lot of people.
Just need to get a few reading lights and a few other bits and bobs and do some more route cards and then I'll open for business from mid June onwards!
I'm doing a website that should be ready in about three weeks time. If anyone would like the link to it when it's ready email me. Don't want to look for business on the forum so won't post again about it, but very happy with all the good advice from people here!
