  • "The driveway is really steep (I now see it mentions it being cambered) & as I drove in, my car slid on the wet/mossy bricks & the wheel went over the ledge at the bottom (not suitable for low/small cars!"

    ). Pool says exclusive use 10am - 6.30pm, but I was given specific times when I could/couldn’t use it, which meant we felt we were in a schedule whilst on holiday. Also, we had to remove the pool covers and replace them after use, which was a 2 person job, so when I was on my own with the kids, it took time & effort. Roof leaked - nothing major, but I had to deal with it. The owner was pleasant & helpful when asked, but we really should have had more warning about some of these issues.
