    “Just Perfect”
    The house was huge with lots of cosy rooms. Lots of nice thoughts went into it like the fairy lights around the living room, a full wine rack
    The house was huge with lots of cosy rooms. Lots of nice thoughts went into it like the fairy lights around the living room, a full wine rack and a lovely summer house with candles for outdoor relaxation. Its dog friendly with a massive garden leading to the weavers way footpath, so handy. Will certainly return in the future and would not hesitate to recommend to others. A Big Thank you. xx
