    “This place doesn't allow dogs, it tolerates dogs.”


    When we arrived, we were greeted with laminated signs which said that dogs were only allowed in the kitchen and utility room. If that had been in the original listing, we would never have booked! I think it's crazy to think that people who would take their dog on holiday would expect to lock it in a room away from them the entire time or have to sit in the kitchen diner to keep it company. Excluding that, the house is really spacious, the hot tub is wonderful and the gardens a joy for the dog to play in. There's definitely no frills, half a roll of toilet roil, very little in the way of cleaning products such as dishwasher tablets or cooking essentials like oil, salt, pepper etc which I think you would expect to be provided for a three night stay. Little things like no bath mats etc are really frustrating. I think, it would be perfect if we return on a holiday with friends (without the pooch), unless they changed the policy as the layout is great for entertaining. Owners were great if you contact them, we had an issue with the shower and one of the owners came over straight away. Overall, a great place but with some hidden drawbacks, not made clear in the listing.
