      Lovely, spacious house. Great garden for the dogs! My only complaints would be to supply soap at the basins and perhaps look at upgrading the beds and pillows at some stage. Otherwise, great value for money.

      We loved the house, it is perfect for our family. My only comment for improvement is to include one bag of of firewood in winter for late arrivals as well as a bit of milk, sugar, coffee & tea.
