  • Property has all the essentials

    Property has all the essentials. It is nice and cosy, big section and location. We had a misunderstanding, and I thought events were allowed. We had to leave the property. Besides that I did agree with there decisions and sent an apology also stating I wouldnt be trying to seek a refund as I thought there decision was fair, but I have had no reply from them. A bit disappointed as I would of hoped to settle it maturely and on good terms. This property is truly amazing and has all the essentials.

  • The property had everything we needed and was in a great location

    The property had everything we needed and was in a great location. There was a large fenced garden that both the child and the dog enjoyed playing in. It is a lovely homely home that was relaxing, convenient and family friendly.
