Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The accommodation was fine. Access to the house after parking the car seemed a bit industrial/having to go up the " goods delivery " lift. Outside the accommodation re patio area was a bit untidy and seating needed replacing. If you need a firm bed,the double bed would not do for you!(too soft) All in all value for monies paid.

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We are currently investing in new garden furniture for the 2016 season so hopefully this won't disappoint next time. The patio/terrace is maintained by a gardener so we will report these comments back. It's a shame a soft bed isn't to your taste and most guests comment on comfy it...
