    Facilities - only reason for reduced score was lack of washing machine and bath (and the shower was slightly temperamental) - but they did offer a laundry service :-) Location - only reason for reduced score was lack of pavement just outside the property, which made guiding my (blind) partner safely rather nerve-wracking, plus the village shop (only one, I think) REALLY didn't have much good stuff in it, so getting any provisions involved a car trip, which we didn't envisage..but that's nobody's fault. :-) Lastly, I missed seeing the "welcome folder" with all the details for the first half of our stay. Once found, it was very helpful - but can I suggest it's left on the coffee table, where it'd be more obvious? These are all minor points, though - only made as I believe (hope) that feedback is helpful.. The place was lovely and welcoming and very comfortable! :-) Regarding publishing this, you can if you want to.. and feel free to edit if needed. I wouldn't PARTICULARLY like you to, but I don't mind.
