We were told there was always lots of space in free road, not true struggled to get parked couple of times! We wouldn't have booked had we realised couldn't have car on site, this wasn't told to us until a week before stay..so that disappointed us. Parking was kept mysterious just told the owner would contact us re parking, which he did, but too late then we'd paid. Just feel should be made clear on booking information for future customers.
