    I did check for any reviews before our stay so was aware of the bumpy unmade up approach but no mention of the approx. 100ft drop to one side into the forest and the track was very steep. This wouldn't have been so bad but the track is not much wider than a car so no way to avoid the very deep pot holes. It does open up a bit over half way up. There is a parking space next to the property but it is very tight to get into and requires a 4 point turn at least to get out of (we have a Vauxhall Astra). The property is a little tired but generally clean. One major problem for us was my husband hurt his back and couldn't get off his hands and knees. I went to phone a doctor for advice but had no signal on mine or my husbands phone. It was quite scary to think we couldn't make contact by phone, which potentially meant getting in the car and driving down the track. I feel it is important to mention in the description that a phone signal could be doubtful in case anyone with a serious medical problem might need to be able to use a phone and there is no one on site to go to...Unfortunately we had to abandon our holiday and come home. Although it sleeps four there is only room for 2 people to sit on the balcony and you have to use the 2 bedroom doors to sit either side of the table as you can't pass it.. There was a leak in the shower which dripped through the kitchen ceiling, it wasn't that much and we didn't notice until the Tuesday when we had to leave. We had to contact the owner when we got back home as couldn't get a signal at the property to let him know... he was very apologetic and going to get straight onto it. This must have been the upside of us having to leave early ….
