Thanks for your review! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.

I'm sorry you found the breakage fees a bit steep - but I don't make anything on breakages! The prices are set at the actual replacement/purchase costs. In fact, they should have been £4 each but I purchased the last replacement ones in the sale! http://www.johnlewis.com/john-lewis-vino-wine-glasses-set-of-4/p230211128

Thanks for the review.
Just to re-clarify what I mentioned in my follow-up email - the heating was on timer, the hot water was on constant. The thermostat is set to 20 degrees. If guests require constant heating they can request this on arrival and will be billed accordingly. The boiler and system is only 3 years old and is serviced annually, most recently in December 2011.
There are in total 4 extension cables in the whole house - covering a total of 15 living and sleeping spaces, excluding bathrooms! These are recommended for surge protection purposes, as in any property.
Unfortunately, fuses do blow, as do bulbs in any house. The house was entirely rewired after we purchased it, 4 years ago. We had an electric safety certification completed only a week before your arrival, although this is not something required by law for self-catering accommodation, I do take the safety of our clients very seriously. The certificate stated the electrics in the house were all safe and complied with current standards. The blip with the fuses in the conservatory has now been resolved, and I wouldn't want future guests to have the impression that there is a long standing problem!

Thanks for the review - I am so glad you enjoyed the house.
We have recently installed a washing machine and dryer for guest use, and I will make sure it is highlighted in the literature for future guests.
