Please feel free to make use of the open fires but remember that children especially will not be familiar with open fires and should be supervised. Also remember that fires and associated equipment is hot, please don't burn yourself, others or the carpets or furniture.
Rubbish We encourage you to use the recycling area in Redmire village even though it is a bit hidden. The area is located at the end of Church Lane, take the main road through the village heading south and as you approach the edge of the village Church Lane is on the left. Follow it to the end into what looks like a deserted farmyard and the recycling area is the far left.
There are 2 large 'wheelie' bins for any waste that can't be recycled. These are collected fortnightly. Please collect one from the end of the lane, where you came in and return it at the end of your stay. Collection day is currently Tuesday so we would ask that if you are on a Monday to Friday stay you ensure both wheelie bins are at the lane end early Thursday morning. We can’t guarantee that there will be space in the wheelie bins so please be prepared to take anything that can't be recycled home with you. Please don’t leave black bags outside or they will be attacked by the local wildlife.
TV, WIFI and Mobile The premises do not hold its own TV Licence nor does it have WIFI. Mobile signal is generally quite good in Station House depending on the operator.
Trainline please ensure that you keep off the railway tracks, they are still in use. The platform outside the barriers is part of the Wensleydale Railway and is therefore out of bounds except when alighting a train. Similarly, people using the service will enter and exit via the car park at the side of the premises. and should not leap over the protective fence. We have an excellent relationship with the Railway and a ride on the train is an interesting way of seeing the local countryside.
First Aid Kit please bring your own, there are none on the premises.
