  • For the age of this cute little home it was great, location...

    For the age of this cute little home it was great, location handy to town, good off street parking & sky tv! Thanks for the use of your home away from home ????

  • Property is very cold in winter

    Property is very cold in winter. Fire place is no longer operational, there seems to be no insulation, thin curtains, and the heaters supplied were inadequate. House is cute but kitchen and bathroom are outdated. Is lacking a lot of the nice finishing touches that come with other book a back rentals, e.g. bathroom supplies. I probably wouldn't usually complain about this - being so cold probably put me in a bad frame of mind! Good location.

  • Disappointed with the furnishings, not within the style of the historic home

    Disappointed with the furnishings, not within the style of the historic home. Could do with a bit of maintenance in the bathroom &out side garden area. No cleaning products available to clean bathroom.
