“Wonderful Christmas holiday”

We decided this year to go away for Christmas. And having been to the Chain locker before while working. I could not think of a better place to be with my husband for Christmas
Everything is within walking or metro. Or even the ferry . Parked the car in the allotted space and never moved it again until we left a week later
ThIs time we were in the one bedroom. It was brilliant. .
What made it so much more homely was the attention we were given by Lynne and John. Wonderful couple. Nothing to much trouble for them
I don't usually do holidays but this year I am and I am hoping to go back to. Chain locker. It's just like home from home. .everything you need is there and more
Thank you to Lynne and john. For such a warm welcome. And a wonderful Christmas and thank you for the Christmas tree.
