Warning – Never leave the 2 burners on high at the same time with the lid closed.
When finished with the BBQ , please turn off both knobs clockwise and shut off the valve on the gas bottle fully by turning clockwise. Please clean after use – the grill plates can be lifted out, use paper towel off excess residue (limiting fats into septic system) then dissolve with hot water / detergent at kitchen sink..
Open Fire Place - Generally 2 split logs will burn for approximately 1 ½ hours - kindling use ¼ of a bag along with rolled newspaper (in firebox or in kitchen draw) as the starter. Extra wood supply is in hallway cupboard/under house. Please use the metal screen at all times to secure burning firewood , hot embers and hot ash from escaping.

Gas supply – The gas to this property is supplied by 2 LPG gas tanks, these tanks are located outside the rear sliding door at the side of the house. The gas runs from 1 tank only, should you find the stove top or oven isn’t lighting, it is most likely that the tank supplying the gas is empty. To remedy this, there is a small lever / valve behind the 2 tanks which are covered by a weather protector, simply flick the lever to the other side and this will then allow the gas from the full tank to continue the gas supply.
