    Very clean and tidy with the bonus of heaters and lights on for our night arrival which was much appreciated. Only issue was that our 6 guests could not all have a hot shower that night due to hot water availability.

    Thanks for the positive feedback and making me aware of the hot water cylinder issue. It's the first time we've had guests run out of hot water, that I'm aware off. The other house and apartment have gas califont so have endless hot water. Thanks for staying with us.

    This is a great place to stay, good location, very comfortable and very clean. Weather was good while we were there but I am sure it will be very cosy in winter.
