  • Very convenient location for getting onto main roads

    Very convenient location for getting onto main roads. Maybe not the nicest area but the house was very well-appointed, warm and well-organised.

  • This house was 5*

    This house was 5*. All the best fittings, appliances. No expense was spared setting up this house. The beds were the best we have slept on. Great quality white linen and towels. Small touches like complimentary milk in the fridge and tea & coffee. The CLEANEST house we have stayed in. Thanks Tim. We will be back!
