The guest arrived yesterday at the Brittany holiday cottage with private pool and were welcomed with a roaring log fire on arrival.
Supplied with fire wood I talked them through how to use the wood burner and showed that with a slide of a switch the fire went from roaring down to a calm burn and back up again.
I explained that the most economical way to keep the cottage warm is to keep a fire burning slowly throughout the day, once the thick stone walls are warm the cottage retains its heat for a long time. I gave the cottage a boost at the start of the day with the central heating to make the whole process easier, the guest have said they will let me know if they need the central heating during there stay at the holiday cottage.
They have brought there golf clubs and are aiming to enjoy a few rounds of golf during there week at La Forge.
