Very Good

“Value for money for those who do not expect a lot of luxuof.”

Reviewed 11 May 2015

For a decent price you get 4 large bedrooms, a large living/dining area and a reasonably sized kitchen. Three toilets to suit al the guests (we were a party of 6). The garden is also big enough for playing kids as well as resting parents. On the downsite: the interior is outdated, there is only 1 small shower (plus on the first Floor a bath, but without a shower), no dvd-player and no dishwasher.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the review which is basically factual. We wouldn't claim the place is luxurious and furnishings tend to be dictated by the fact that the place is a very old, listed building. We are unable to get a dishwasher in due to plumbing issues (and that's what men are for on holiday!) but have added a DVD player to the existing satellite TV, video and internet.
