  • "Wall in kitchen full of splashed fat, chair in kitchen seat badly stained, no light working in bathroom downstairs upstairs 2nd bedroom on suite toilet flush never stopped making noise continually."

    Few hairs in bathroom dust first bathroom. Beds advertising as king but I would say they are only double with king size cover on it.

  • "This accommodation is amazing."

    So perfect and peaceful. The bath's could both just do with grab handles to get out and that's for any ages not just older people. I would 100% recommend this place and return to it ourselves.

    I think the bath needs a support rail to help older people get in and out of the bath, as I had difficulty doing it Parking quite tricky but it's hard to see what can be done as the properties are so close together

  • "Seating (leather sofas) and only one other hard chair not very flexible or comfortable."

    Parking is very tight and turning difficult, not recommended for large vehicles. Otherwise well kept and equipped.
