Heating is via an oil-fired boiler external to the Cottage, and the system is separately controllable in each Bedroom/Bathroom, and in the Living Areas. The Cottage also benefits from a whole-house Ventilation System, which is completely silent in operation, and which ensures condensation-free Bathrooms and fresh air throughout the building. Tap water is wonderfully pure spring-water, and so there is no need to bring bottled water with you.
Brook Farm also operates as a small exclusive Trout Fishery. The fishing is available on a Syndicate Members basis only. For this reason,Cottage Guests are usually unable to walk around the lakes. The fishing activity is completely separate from the Cottage.
