5/5 Excellent

Great Family Property
Loved the outside dining, BBQ and seating areas in a fernery and undercover so we sat out in the rain. The house suited us perfectly. Great location, lovely cycle path into town. Quite rustic which we liked, very relaxing. Nice grass at the rear. Plenty of room. Separate toilet worked well as only one bathroom. Thank you - we would love to retun one day.

3/5 Okay

Good but a few little things let it down
- No hair dryer as listed - please was not very clean with a lot of cobwebs, dead bugs and dust that had not been cleaned in a long time - bins were too full to throw rubbish out - very dark lighting meant it was difficult to actually see what we were eating/doing in lounge areas On the plus side - owner comms lovely - place in good location - lots of space and excellent outdoor
