  • “Loved the property BUT no internet ...”

    Loved the property BUT no internet connection. In this day and age this is a must. It's not very professional to have to go to pub for business purposes.

    Loved the property BUT no internet connection. In this day and age this is a must. It's not very professional to have to go to pub for business purposes. ALSO. would have preferred to have toilet upstairs. Perhaps no shower upstairs but a loo ???? Having said that the efficiency and kindness shown by the owner was much appreciated and unexpected. Thank you
