“Well equipped bungalow in a good location”

Reviewed 1 Jan 2019

Nice detached bungalow great for all amenities and trips around D & G. Very well equipped home from home and in a great location however A few small issues below: Bath panel has watermarks all over it so has been leaking / is leaking; Bathroom storage has gone rusty with being metal and through condensation so does need changing; Shower over bath has a screen and has not been cleaned for some time as black around edges, also rather dusty; Lounge could do with a roller blind at the large window and so could conservatory for privacy; Could not get gas stove in lounge to work despite instructions however was warm enough with radiators; Tap in kitchen has a constant drip; Kitchen door plain toughened glass but no frosted strip to show when closed which can be off putting when closed and when entering from lounge. All in all we had a good trip and as said previously a well equipped bungalow.

Owner's reply: I am glad you had a good stay. Various repairs are due to be done in the next month notably the bath panel and storage racks. The shower screen is cleaned after every holiday stay however the seal is due to be replaced. Sheila & Steve are always happy to show guests how to operate appliances if needed. The gas stove works well but the lighting operation needs to be done slowly as per the instructions.

“Wonderfully relaxing and comfortable stay”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2017

We had a really lovely, comfortable stay at the bungalow. It's surprisingly spacious and exceptionally well thought out- really functional and practical with all the home comforts you need. The town is really nice and there's plenty to do in the local area. The house provides a great base for exploring and is always cosy and warm to come back to. The river views were a bonus. The locals were friendly and the little cinema in town and the Cree Bridge House hotel are worth a visit during your stay. The only improvement that could have been made for our stay is that I would have liked to have had a key to lock the internal door leading to the garage. Although I was probably being too security conscious, I was a little uneasy going to bed some nights...wondering who else knows the code for the garage door. All in all, a really lovely stay and I would 100% recommend.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely comments. A note on the garage - it is entirely secure as the rest of the house is - The internal door does not have a key as it is considered to be the fire escape route including for a wheelchair. The visitor key code is changed to maintain security.
