“The apartment is perfect for two with all the usual facilities.”
It is secluded if you are looking to really get away from it all but within easy reach of A1 and the coast. However, the apartment could benefit from some TLC. The drapes in the bedroom have been puled off their runners in places. The plumbing needs work, as the hot water runs cold and the cold water runs hot, so much so that even the cistern serving the toilet holds hot water. The shower was inoperable and because of the plumbing problems it was difficult to fill a bath with hot water. ...

The light fitting in the kitchen did not work - luckily we were there at the time of the year when it was not required.
