    Place is a bit damp. A dehumidifier put on a day before tenants arrive would to good in the colder months. My grand kids loved it and especially the bush walks.

    Bach was clean and tidy and had loads of necessities that we could use. We particularly loved the fireplaces - perfect for keeping cosy in the cold weather.

    You sure need those fires and heatpump when it's cold, you will have to come back when the weather is warmer!
