    The house was perfect as there were three generations of our family and there was plenty room for us all. The house was really well equipped, especially as we had a baby, so mainly ate at home in the evening The owners were friendly and on hand if required.

    The house was lovely however the owners were not! They had rules rules rules! The House is a pet friendly home but dogs were not allowed upstairs we didn't know this. My mother is 80 she had a small dog that is used to bring with her he cried all night! Should be made clear that dogs aren't allowed upstairs. Two rooms beds were ok but hard the other rooms beds were far to small!! Only one towel each to last all week we had to wash it and dry it again to use it! The dryer didn't work and the dishwasher didn't work properly either. When we told the owners we were told we would have to manage without them! I would not recommend anyone to stay here and we would not stay here again.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner:- As a conscientious owner of a holiday home we try to make sure your stay is a happy enjoyable experience , but there are terms and conditions when you book , one states that dogs are not allowed on the furniture or upstairs. We are surprised to hear the beds are too small as they are all standard sized beds and never been an issue before. We provide 2 bath towels and a hand towel to each person that stays in the property and we have a washing machine in the property if needed. As for all properties we get wear and tear and damages , so when the dish washer broke down we immediately had it fixed for future guests. This our home and our pride and joy , we go the extra mile to make sure it's wonderful so our guests have an enjoyable experience here, as you can see from our other Reevoo comments.
