The house is okay, although not near as nice as the description and pictures makes it out to be.
However, what is more serious is that the owner demands a GBP500 "bond" as a deposit for any damages you may make. However, he does not return this "bond" and so your rental becomes much more expensive than you expect !
So, our advise is - stay away.
The client's bond was returned albeit later than stated in the conditions simply due to the fact that the owner had been undergoing cancer treatment.
