Not to mention cleaner demanding to tidy up at 9 o clock...

I know exactly when this guy stayed with a group on a one night stay, they caused needless and criminal damage over £1000 worth. Most of them also decided to leave early in the morning thinking they can get away without paying the damage. Its on going at present and is going to court. They were the only ones who...

Have just come back from a weekend stay here with 12 hens. Had a wicked time, and from booking and upon arrival, the owner (Chrissy) and her daughter were friendly and helpful; everyone had their own keys which is needed in a big group. Gave us great advice on taxis (what to expect to not get ripped off), maps, etc......
