    “We arrived via the instructions parking the car on a very steep slope not a problem for my husband but would be for a less confident driver.”

    We are both quite fit but struggled to get our bags to the front door up an extremely steep driveway. Would definitely not have liked to have been staying here in the winter. ...

    We are both quite fit but struggled to get our bags to the front door up an extremely steep driveway. Would definitely not have liked to have been staying here in the winter. All facilities were as described although there was no sink in the bathroom and had to walk to the bedroom to wash our hands. On our arrival the house felt very cold although the temperature was not too cold outside. We put on the electric fire to heat the place but it made such a terrible noise was too annoying to use. On day three the central heating came on although the radiator in the kitchen/lounge was not very hot. There was a damp patch around the kitchen window and the paintwork in the bedroom could have done with being repainted. The appearance of the place soft furnishings etc were nice just could have done with a new lick of paint and some proper heating. Overall the experience felt more like camping. Mrs Ball
