    Arrived for Christmas and not a decoration insight, disappointing so had to go and prepare Christmas and bring from home...luckily I live an hour away. Kitchen fridge didn't seal properly and unit's tatty and damp damaged and wood curling away and poor quality. Equipment and utensils great but disappointed in state of kitchen for the cost of property. Upstairs lounge carpet dirty and the sofas were dreadful to sit on and I brought throws to cover up as they were so old and marked. tV had no signal so left a day early as too quiet once family left and only two of us. Bedrooms smelt damp and furniture from the ark, looked as if it was 1950s and certainly not up to par for a rental. Won't even discuss bathrooms which neeeded refurb and far too many issues to write. Disappointing experience and only made tolerable because we felt comfortable with the dogs...because everything was shabby!

    It was not as clean as it should have been. I found the bed uncomfortable. The lounge furniture needs updating as it is unsupportive and old. We did think the location was nice and the views too was lovely. The local pub was welcoming and the food was good. We would not stay there again, we thought it expensive for the standard of accommodation, it was roomy and the garden was pleasant, it had some nice features but overall not the best we have rented.
