This is an excellent family home with a lot of facilities. It has a very beautiful private garden with nice flowers and has been well maintained. The swimming pool is very nice with all needed facilities. The house has 4 bedrooms with en-suite bathroom in each, making the stay of a big family very comfortable. The house also has a big living room, fantastic Conservatory, and an excellent kitchen with all utensils. The hous is in a very good location with easy access to local shops and the railway station which is connected to London terminal in only 44minutes trip. It is also very close to the Blue Water Shopping centre. The owners of the house are very friendly and hospitable and were very keen to provide us with whatever we need. My children and grandchildren were very happy as well, and we are looking forward to be there again (God Willing)!
