The SpaceThe loft double bed will be available for couples and kids until early December 2015! If you'd like to make a special request for it to stay over the holiday period just let us know or we'll be lowering it into a solid pine Queen bed.
At the moment, if you prefer a lower bed (no ladder) there is also a very comfy double sofa bed in this room.
If you'd like to sleep the maximum of five, it's four in the above options and one on a single mattress under the loft double bed.
#Please note: The loft bed has a guard all around but the stairs are steep. This bed may not be suitable for young children. Dear parents, please feel free to speak to us if you need more information.
