“A nice, roomy house but needs some attention to detail”
Reviewed 15 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had an overall pleasant 4 night stay here. The kids loved the size of the house and the fact there were nooks to hide and play in. The downside we found, through no fault of the owner, was that the noise easily carries to the bedrooms meaning for us with young children, this could pose a problem at night. The beds are either double or single beds so if you are used to a larger bed at home, which we are, this takes a bit of adjusting to! In fairness though we knew this when we booked.
Ok things needing attention: on our first night the upstairs electrical circuit tripped countless times. This happened while attempting to bath my young children, making for a very unpleasant experience. We called to report it right away but to our knowledge, nobody was round to fix it the following day as we had been advised. There was no note or follow up call to my knowledge although to be fair we had a very limited mobile reception. By the final night I had though the lights must all be working again and that perhaps we had missed someone round to fix it but it happened again and the circuit tripped.

Agree with the comment about the carpet needing replacing in the stairwell and mattresses on the whole were found to be quite hard and uncomfortable. Pillows too quite firm and not feather filled. Bedding entirely a personal thing though, I agree but just not for me on this occasion.

The dining chairs in the kitchen offer no support, you sink into them, a very small thing but made a difference nonetheless as we ate in a lot during our stay.

Everything else we enjoyed, the living room is very cosy and we loved the oven and well features. The candles were a nice touch and smelled lovely. The shower upstairs powerful enough.

All in all a good stay in a bright, welcoming and well equipped house. Just a shame about the oustanding circuit issue!

Hall/ Stair carpet is being replaced today.
I'm sorry about the inconvenience that the electrical problem caused, this has thankfully now been resolved, it took a couple of visits before electrician found the fault.
Mattress were al replaced following complaints about being too soft - its difficult to satisfy everyone.

“Lovely house but not 5 star”
Reviewed 20 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This house really is lovely with a few quirks. It is very accomodating of 10 people and we had a great weekend together as a family.

However, there are a few drawbacks. There is very limited on street parking. If you get a space you'll likely want to keep it and walk!
I stripped the beds prior to leaving and the duvets and pillows were dirty. Not nice.
Stairs were grimey and need a good clean.
Carpets definately needs cleaning.
Lights didn't work in top floor bathroom, or the well.
Top floor bed is rock hard. Like sleeping on concrete. Ended up sharing with my daughter in a single just to get some sleep.

Did the job but I'm not sure I'd revisit.
