  • "Great property and location."

    High end kitchen and bathroom. Spacious. Only constructive criticism would be that if you were sharing say between 2 families (I.e max capacity of 8), one bathroom is limiting despite 3 toilets. Could do with more seating - especially at the rear of kitchen near log burner. Few more saucepans would be ideal and a stock of logs for the log burner. Small improvements would have made 5 star review rather than 4. Still had a great time and would go back, albeit we stayed as a family of 4.

    Thanks for the overall, really positive feedback. Pleased to know you rated the high end spacious kitchen. Thanks for your suggestions to improve our property, all gratefully received. Extra pans/another armchair an easy enough fix, additional bathroom requires extra thought as we don’t want to take away from the great sleeping space on offer. Unfortunately we can’t provide logs for the burner, but local shops tend to have a good stock. We hope you return in the future, thank you so much Property Owner

    Great location, beautiful house with so much space and amenities. It was all at such a high standard. The location was close to town and the wonderful Fitz Park in a very quiet neighborhood. If possible we would love to book it again for a week next August?
