Booked in Aug 22 but misleading photographs were on this site and many others. The front garden no longer exits and grounds cut in half. The living room and main bedroom view is no longer a garden but an immediate fence with little light. The land has been sold to build a new bungalow directly outside front of this propety. Photos have been updated now but please be aware they show the SIDE of the property. No peace due to building work 8-5, they have roof slats on but plenty more to do. No privacy for hotub because of this with workmen on roof etc. Anyone who has booked this property before 6 Sep 22 when photos changed are ikely to be disappointed like we were. Sofa needs replacing as stained and nothing left in cushions. Clean but tired. Guttering by front porch and by bedroom window pours out with water when it rains which is noisy. Grounds are very scruffy and garage area untidy. Pots and plants overgrown and neglected. Main gate lock needs fixing. We were welcomed by an array of empty bins at the end of drive, 5 in total.so not put away in a while. Beds are comfy, heating good and welcome pack was nice but didn't offset our disappointment or feeling of being mislead with this property. We should have been told in writing of the changes and not left to find out on arrival. This includes the new bathroom which has replaced a large walk in shower. People with mobility issues should be aware there is no handrail so will likely need assistance.

Just got back home after spending the week here. Absolutely fabulous bungalow with everything you could ever need. Extremely well equipped, beds were really comfy and location is amazing. The property was spotless on arrival and the hot tub was ready for use. Thank you for a fabulous week.
