  • Nice property but there was too much of the owners’ personal belongings...

    Nice property but there was too much of the owners’ personal belongings in Bach, only pantry cupboard full, bedside & bathroom drawers full at these premium prices felt stressful keeping track of ours and their things.

    Thanks for your feedback, The kitchen is left this way so that you can use bits and pieces of ours, eg, salt, flour, gladwrap, ect. We will take on board the bathroom and bedroom. Margaret
