              I will always stay at Dariens house! Friendly, clean, beautiful, accommodating! Just perfect for me and my family!

              Pleasant, but dated. Not ideal for long stays as the mini freezer does not work properly and there is no oven. Couple of spiders I can deal with, but would have liked the spider webs to be cleaned without asking. If you are on a budget, then I would recommend it.

              I love how spacious and homely and comfortable everything was; comfortable couches, bed, warm duvet, 2 electrical heaters on freezing evenings. Reading lamps available.Beautiful view of garden. I liked how friendly and helpful the host is and her sweet little Yorkie. I like how beautifully the place would be cleaned everyday and I enjoyed coming home at the end of everyday. The kitchen had everything I needed in terms of crockery and cutlery but no tin opener which I alerted host to and she quickly found me on.

              It's a lovely place but really not well taken care of. There were spiders everywhere,curtains had stains and bedding wasn't clean. But it's would had been the most amazing place only if it was cleaned properly.

              We really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean and tidy and very comfortable.
