    “We only booked for a weekend and the hot tub wasn't ready for use until 2pm on Saturday, after us making the owner aware of the fact.”

    (Beware the steps into the hotvtub, uneven, dirty and slippy) He did respond quickly to our phone call but the whole process of making it useable took several hours. He did make amends by letting us have a late checkout on Sunday. ...

    (Beware the steps into the hotvtub, uneven, dirty and slippy) He did respond quickly to our phone call but the whole process of making it useable took several hours. He did make amends by letting us have a late checkout on Sunday. The TV was completely disconnected possibly by the previous occupants and it took us a couple of hours to work out how to set it up and retune it all. The cookers symbols are all worn off, again a considerable amount of time taken to get it all up and running. The radio/cd player in the kitchen is covered in grease and unworkable. On the plus side the beds were clean and comfortable. Bathrooms clean and in good condition. Towels provided were also good. The house is in an excellent location in the village, close to the pub which is lovely. Overall the house, although ideal for a group or large family, is in need of tlc. Every curtain in the place is either missing some hooks or tie backs. There are cobwebs everywhere, the windows don't look as if they've ever been cleaned. We actually really enjoyed our weekend but that was more to do with the company and the location than anything the house had to offer.
