Very tired, poorly stocked, shower not working, not enough equipment for cooking,-disappointingG

  • 1 of 5

As above plus an number of essential items had to be bought on arrival (eg loo paper) kitchen not really well enough equipped for large party to cook and prepare meals. Outside area very bleak. The fact that couples had to enter other bedrooms to get a shower was not good. Aga would have been lovely if properly equipped with oven gloves, large enough pans etc.

It appeared to us that the place had not been cared for by earlier guests and was no longer loved and welcoming.

Super house in a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

The house is brilliant and couldn't be bettered situated for all the places we needed to walk to, which is just as well as there is no parking. The owners could do to buy some visitors' permits.

It's perfect for large groups and is wonderfully light and airy. The bedroom in the roof is tricky to access via a spiral. Not for the faint hearted!

The house is generally well enough equipped but as there is an Aga some some suitable Agaware is necessary, particularly if a group plans to cook on it.

The house has been done up to a high standard. It's a shame the garden is scruffy and unkempt. We would have liked to have sat out in the evenings but this wasn't particularly pleasant. This is why only 4 stars, not 5.
