    Excellent property, very warm with plenty of hot water, good facilities and very quiet. Not really any local amenities with the local pub closed and no shop.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. There is a very good local shop and post office about a mile down the road attached to the garage.

    We were very disappointed to find that the house, although designated as accepting pets, is not really suitable for taking dogs to as the fields around the house had sheep and cattle in them which prevented bother the dogs and ourselves enjoying the garden despite the lovely weather. It should be made much more clearer on the property description that the fields do have farm animals in them. Otherwise the house is very well equipped and luxurious.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. The house is in the countryside so it can be taken for granted there will be farm animals. Most people take dogs to the property where there is 4 acres of land; plenty of space to let your dog’s run around. You still need to watch where they go though so you can pick up dog mess.

    The fact that we have stayed here 9 times speaks volumes. It's a home from home set in tranquil surroundings.......but also has as full range of facilities etc. Excellent.
