    There were a number of issues that arose. The first was the steep drive up to the house. This was covered in moss and difficult to negotiate without a 4X4. One of our cars got stuck and needed the RAC to get it out, whose driver commented adversely on the state of the drive. The owners pointed out that it had been very wet, but that does not mean they couldn't have tried clearing the moss to make access easy. There was also difficulty in manouevering cars in the car park. This can no way be described as adequate parking - we only had 4 cars and only just about managed, as some of our party couldn't come. I think the nature of the drive should have been more adequately described in the details of the property The second point was s smell of gas in the kitchen. The owners arranged for a plumber to examine the cooker, who found no leak, but explained how it may have occurred. A note warning guests to watch out for this would have prevented our anxiety. The third major incident was a plaster fall from a ceiling. This could have caused injury if one or our party had been underneath. It appears that some rain had entered as there was a flat roof. The owners came the same day to clear up the mess, and remarked that tis was an unforseen event. However, maybe a more thorough inspection of the property prior to lettting the property might have identified a potential problem. Overall the cleanliness and equipment in the house were good, and despite the above frustrations we were satisfied with the house.

    The venue was great for our large family gathering and having plenty of space really worked. The rooms were quite nice though the bathrooms are in need of an update. Generally the property requires a deep clean and we needed to wash a lot of the equipment in the kitchen before we could use it. The pool table is barely fit for purpose either. The owners were very nice and were quick to respond in communication and to assist as necessary. We would stay again, but mainly because of the size of the property as it would fit our requirements. It does need a fair bit of TLC though.

    We enjoyed a great family week with four generations. Plenty of space inside to all be together and enough spaces for us all to be separate if wanted. The young adults enjoyed the pool/bar area. It was like having your own private free pub. Kitchen is a good size but a few more knives for preparation of meals would be good.The garden is not really suitable for young unsupervised children so we kept them indoors. The house is comfortable and robust so we were able to allow the children to roam around across all four floors. There is good walking in the area and everyone enjoyed the tunnels beach.
