• How clean is WPH?
Very, very clean. All communal areas are cleaned twice a day - our shower-rooms are immaculate, our kitchen gleams and our tables shine! (Yes; we are a bit OCD about cleanliness!)

Your rent covers your room, council tax, gas, electricity and water, use of the kitchen, lounges and shower-rooms, parking, plus free tea, coffee etc, and fibre WiFi

Yes, (unless you want to bring your own). We offer a laundry service
• Is parking free?
Yes, private off road parking is free, we just ask you to park considerately
• Can I stay over at the weekend?
Yes of course you can – your room is a yours for the length of your stay – so if you need to work over the weekend or fancy exploring the Lakes, you can at no extra charge
• Do you have a bar or drinks licence?
No we don’t – you are welcome to bring your own beer/wine etc but please treat the place respectfully, all our residents work very hard, and this is not 'party central' so please don’t make any noise after 10pm
• Can we bring takeaway food in the house?
Yes of course, and for a bit more choice we should point out that there are some good pubs in the vicinity; the Crown in North Scale serves great food and the Ferry Hotel has a three-roast carvery for £4.29!
• Is there a minimum term?
Yes we require you to stay for a minimum of two weeks – although your tenancy agreement can be for much longer
• Can I smoke in the premises?
No, sorry, in line with legislation you are not allowed to smoke in the premises, we do however provide a smoking shelter and large ashtrays. Please do not smoke in the house as we have VERY sensitive smoke detectors and the fire alarm will sound if you smoke in your room. There is a £100 cleaning charge for smoking in the house

Yes, if you wish to have your room cleaned or your laundry done, please ask us for details
