Fabulous place, warm, welcoming and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Arrived late in the evening to find the outside lights on and access exactly as described.

The house was warm and welcoming and even better than the pictures portray.

I stayed with 3 very elderly relatives and access by the front door was fine and once in the house everything was easy for them and myself.

The kitchen was a dream to cook in and very comfy to sit in at the end of the day exploring and plan the next.

Will definitely be back.

Lovely House and plenty of space!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 6 days with a group of 7. The house was the perfect size for our bunch! There was a little learning curve on some of the appliances, but that's just because we were stupid Americans ;) The house was clean! Had everything we could possibly need in terms of kitchen appliances and irons, etc. We did end up buying a blow drier as we couldn't initially find them (3rd drawer down in random bedroom bureaus seems an odd location to keep them). And the house was almost out of toilet paper when we arrived, so we had to buy more, but honestly loved the house. Sheila was so great we didn't mind donating a 4th blow drier to the house. The location was great, large superstore nearby for anything you need, easy parking, and the guestbook gave lots of wonderful tips! Would absolutely stay here again!!!!

Owner's Response: I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay despite the muddle in not finding the hair dryers. Please be aware that, as is usual in this country, we did provide 2 toilet rolls for each bathroom to 'start you off' but we are not a hotel, and you are expected to be able to cater for yourself! We do supply hand soap, laudry liquid, dishwashing tablets, tea, coffee and sugar which is way more than a lot of rental houses. However I am glad that you had a good time, and I look forward to seeing you again sometime in the future maybe?
