Great house just minor niggles
Hired the house for the last week. The views are truely stunning of the river and surrounding scenery. Great house with first floor dining room, laundry room, kitchen and toilet. 2nd floor, living room, bedroom and master bathroom, 3rd floor 2 bedrooms, 1 ensuite, 1 small bathroom, 4 floor 2 bedrooms. Beds were comfy but everywhere just needed a really good clean. I understand its a large traditional house but it could do with a little face-lift. The sofas were beyond smelly and again needed either a really deep clean or replacing. The house really keeps it's heat so lovely and warm. Fanastic location as everything is within walking distance. Really ace house just could have some improvements.

Nice big clean house all the things needed and more, big kitchen living room and tidy spacious bedrooms. Parking abit difficult but it's just down the road

Lovely house in a great location - just a few minor issues
PROS This house is certainly in a great location with lots of cafes, restaurants and activities close by. Lovely to lay in bed at night and hear the River Dee crashing past along with the sound of the steam trains during the day. The owners have clearly made lots of effort with the property with some lovely bedrooms and new kitchen units etc. There was a problem with the Sky TV but the owners did fix it within a few days which we appreciated. Lovely to have an enclosed secure courtyard so the dog could go out safely. CONS To get a top level rating there are a few things they would need to think about which would be frustratingly cheap and easy to fix and would make such a difference such as a new ironing board (the one there is so mucky and ripped you would not want to put your clothes on it). It would also be nice to have a display of leaflets for attractions in the area and a Visitors' Book readily available whilst at the moment there is just a cupboard with lots of leaflets thrown in which looks very uninviting as do the handwritten signs sellotaped to the walls and peeling off. Some new sofas might be nice - we were a small party so we didn't need to use them all and could just pick the best but if there were 10 of you seated then a few of you would be very uncomfortable (they are not the sofas shown in the property photos). There are 4 bathrooms but only 2 have showers (one being in the ensuite) so for a party of 5 couples this would be a pain. Maybe need some over the bath showers installed ? No hairdryer so bring your own otherwise you have to go buy one like I did. Handy Hint - if you are visiting with a group ask for more than one key ! We did not and it was a bit of a logistical issue making sure there was always one of us around and as the door locks as you close it we were in constant fear of leaving the one key inside. The complaints above are really niggles and things which would make a lovely property fantastic. Do not let them stop you booking ... just bear them in mind.

We loved our stay and are looking to book for next year.

The location was amazing and the views were fantastic from the rooms in the front of the house. The house was well presented and extremely well proportioned. Highly recommended.
