    “The house was lovely, however there were no photographs of the stairs, we knew they were steep but we feel like the property wasn’t as suitable for children as we expected.”

    The layout of the glasses and plates etc wasn’t very good due to the fact of having children we had to move everything into a more suitable place. We enjoyed our stay but expected a bit more of a child friendly property as it was expected as told on the listing.

Enter the property to discover a cosy living/dining room, with stylish and quirky features, including a wood effect feature wall, a chest-style coffee table, an arm chair with an overhead lamp, where you can curl up with a good book, and a sofa placed opposite the wall-mounted Smart TV, which rests above the wooden fireplace, where the woodburning stove can heat up the space and add a cosy feel to a family movie night, while the dining table offers the ideal place to enjoy meals and make plans for the remainder of your stay.

The contemporary kitchen is well-equipped with all of the appliances you could need, including a Smeg kettle and toaster, an integrated fridge/freezer and electric oven, as well as providing you with plenty of space to prepare delicious home-cooked meals.
