Stains on the sofa.
Fireplace was unsafe as it was tricky to turn it on causing the flames to come straight at you.
Twin beds were far too small for adults.
Radiators in all rooms.
Kitchen appliances available including cutlery and plates.
Plenty of room for storage.
Nice open view.

Very comfy and good disabled access.
Such a great location and link to the motorway and supermarket yet well into the country for a quiet area. A very tidy place well run and friendly staff. This is our second spell and will try again next year.
Just lovely! Would visit again.
