Look forward to spending your evening curled up on the leather sofas and let the warming woodburning stove keep you warm during those chillier winter months.

  • “Lovely house, great location.”

    Minor issues with parking, no garden for the dog, and it would be nice to have had some basic condiments salt pepper olive oil, even a washing tablet
