Almost perfect
Beautiful building with amazing views. Driveway is a major issue though! Wouldn't recommend trying to attempt the driveway! We just left our cars on the road side and walked. (Not ideal with 2 young kids and luggage) A few other things let it down. The toaster doesn't work. Plug in bathroom sink doesn't work. Front door is really stiff to open. Lots of positives though! Beautiful views! Games and toys for kids Comfy beds Quiet location.

Horrific access. Not suitable for young children. Clean and tidy inside.
Our VW Touran parking sensors front and rear constantly beeped up and down this drive even on straight parts it has a turn requiring manoeuvres in the middle and is extremely steep. A low slung or longer car would not make it up and it's a long way to walk with bags or children and also unsafe if another car came up. The path from driveway to door is unsafe, steep and slimy, I fell. The house,while clean, had issues. No fan in bathroom or opening window, toaster not working, wash hand basin sink broken, shower runs v hot and v cold. There is not a garden area that is safe to sit, the lawn is on a slope and decking is unsafe, missing side entirely and is raised so there is a drop. Trampoline on decking but no safety net and around a 6' drop if you bounced off the edge. House ok for adults walking with no car or small car. Not families.

The property was in a gorgeous setting with lovely grounds, the sitting room was lovely and spacious.
Mrs Anderson

Very clean apartment in beautiful surroundings and a beautiful garden.
Mr Bryn

Lovely House and a stunning view. Games were provided by owners and there was lots of linen. Would return.
