All ready for our next guests due this afternoon. We leave the fireplace all ready – with enough fuel for at least one evening – but guests must read the instructions we always leave in the fire to make sure they cannot be missed. There’s not much to having an open fire but there are some very important safety instructions people must be aware.
- Never leave the room without placing the fire guard in front of the fire
- Make sure the flue flap is open (there is a CO alarm in the room)
- Plus other points on the instructions we leave in the cottage.
