"Exceeded Expectations"

The house was spotless and full of character..with a cosy atmosphere and although not large it felt comfortable and homely..the house has been lovingly maintained by the owner Norman who kept in good contact to ensure we were happy, even to the point of leaving us a welcome pack of goodies and wine.
We especially enjoyed the opportunity of opening the patio doors from the kitchen which lead out on to a small but private patio garden where we would often enjoy breakfast. and the all important beds were extremely comfortable. Being a Terrace House car parking is on the street which at night was busy with parked cars but we always managed to park ok.
