    “Lounge furniture tired and threadbare on arms of chairs.”

    Decoration in dining room needed with plaster coming off end wall. Very surprised that no welcome pack on arrival which is poor as all the properties we have rented through Sykes previously have provided this. Not even a bottle of milk. a shower mat would have been useful as would some soap in bathroom. Otherwise lovely quiet grounds. Friendly host.
