    “The property itself was ok but lacked a homely touch.”

    The heavy lounge furniture was too big for the room - blocking off doors and peat burner so we had to continually move it around - not an easy task. Just a thought - the lounge needs coffee table/s.

    The heavy lounge furniture was too big for the room - blocking off doors and peat burner so we had to continually move it around - not an easy task. Just a thought - the lounge needs coffee table/s. The only space to sit in the open was a big disappointment. There was a rusty old bq and the “garden” wasn’t in good shape at all. We definatly would not return.
