Thank you for your kind feedback and for your idea about making more room for parking at the back of the property. We will definitely have a look to see if it will work better. I'm afraid we had not thought of it as smaller cars have always been fine to park in the drive but we do need to account for larger cars. Thank you again for your comments on the house we are pleased you would like to return - it makes all the hard work worthwhile when we hear that from our guests.
