We were relying on a meter reading to pay for this at the end of our stay but didn't have a clue as to how much cash to put to one side). Also we are to used to having soft water in the north west of England, and there were issues with lime in the water causing problems with the toilet flushing. Again though, after a quick call for help the owner showed us how to sort it out. No-one's fault. (Maybe a few lines in the guest information folder?) On the whole, a great break from the rat-race and the hustle and bustle of modern life.
