    I thought the standard of the accommodation was very high. This fully met expectations and I was pleased with this and the amenities provided. Thoughtful considerations such as a box of children's toys was appreciated. I would make some suggestions for the property. I didn't not see a WiFi connection and it would be helpful to have a router in place in the property. We also arrived quite late at night and it was difficult to locate the turning into the property on a country lane. It might help to have an illuminated or reflective sign- however, I appreciate it may have been my sat nav which "arrived at destination" some 300m short of the property. However these comments are merely minor improvements on an excellent rental property. I noted from the guest book that several families have had multiple stays and, having stayed there now myself, I can fully understand the attraction
