Path to main entrance
From the pavemnet to our front hallway there are a total of 6 steps. One single step onto our path which gently slopes uphill to our front door. There are then 2 sets of steps. One pair of steps then a level ground then 3 steps into the hallway. There are rails at these steps. The entrance door is secure and requires a code to entre and is kept locked for guests security and peace of mind.
Getting around inside
the staircase leading up to the first floor is carpetted and has a rail. The staircase has a turn in it as it is an old Vicotrian house which means the stairs get narrow on the inside at the side of the handrail. Please see the pictures for details

Customer care support
We have no staff at Straven guesthouse. This means that although we live there we do go out at times and sleep overnight so there is no 24 hour staff. We ask that guests checking in let us know an arrival time so we can be in to greet them and show them round. After that there is no curfew and guests have their own access to their bedroom to come and go.
