    “Need stools or chairs for the dressing tables in all rooms.”

    I had to move the mirror to be near a socket to dry my hair and had to sit on the floor. Not very sensible to have a dressing room with no natural light, no sockets and no where to sit, but can see it was meant to be an en suite and not completed, which is a shame. The gap to get in and out of the shower in both bathrooms is quite small, good thing none of us is overweight! A mop would have been useful. There is no tv in the snug although I asked that at the time of booking and was told there ...

    I had to move the mirror to be near a socket to dry my hair and had to sit on the floor. Not very sensible to have a dressing room with no natural light, no sockets and no where to sit, but can see it was meant to be an en suite and not completed, which is a shame. The gap to get in and out of the shower in both bathrooms is quite small, good thing none of us is overweight! A mop would have been useful. There is no tv in the snug although I asked that at the time of booking and was told there was. Also asked for an inventory of kitchen equipment and was told there wasn't one, but there is in the house so it could be made available in advance of the holiday in future, if required. We took extra pans etc to cook xmas dinner and we needed them, especially the roasting pan for the meat. We also had to unblock the vacuum cleaner left for clients use, looked like it had never been emptied. Needed more recycling bins over the Xmas period. However, these are just small inconveniences/recommendations for future, overall the house was gorgeous and we had a wonderful family Xmas.
