    “This is a beautiful property in a fantastic setting and on the large side sleeping 18, although the bedroom/bathroom configuration is not the best and would not suit everyone.”

    ...

    But there is always a premium to pay for large party properties and small things seem to become very important. A little more attention to detail and putting things right has to be paramount. We had in one bathroom no hot water for a week, the basin tap and loo seat where extremely loose.☹️ Large cobwebs on the dining room ceiling and drawing pins stuck in around the table top. Cupboards and drawers where littered with odds and ends. Some of the bedding left a lot to be desired. Would we go back? Yes. But I would love to think that some money was being ploughed back into the property so that facilities and comfort as well as cleanliness was as good in late season, as they where in early and peak season. I’m aware November is late in the season and a few knocks and scrapes are expected. You do need to keep your eye on the ball. Paul Blagden
