“Good location though house needed some updating”
Reviewed January 15, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

The house itself was well spaced out and the beds were comfortable. It is on the HIgh street which was convenient, though we did get woken up one night with people talking outside and barrels being replaced in the pub opposite a couple of mornings. It did need some updating though. One of the bedroom windows was broken and had been repaired with masking tape and both front bedroom windows were very mouldy from condensation, THe Rayburn cooker was the only method of cooking and would decide to turn itself off in the middle of cooking for no explicable reason. We gave up using it after ruining some lovely sirloin steaks. The fridge was tiny for six people and you couldn’t put anything in the doors as it fell out. The downstairs shower is bit basic and the shower room is freezing cold with inadequate heating and the drain smelt. The house itself was warm when the heating was on but very draughty but the gas stove in the sitting room made it very cosy. The Internet router connection was virtually non existent and none of us could watch anything on iPads or similar.
However, the house was charming and if the above could be rectified would be a great place for a holiday.

“A comfortable house full of character”
Reviewed October 7, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

A very comfortable and pleasant stay.
The cooking facilities could be improved though, as there is only a Rayburn - no gas/electric cooker or hob. This is a bit difficult when cooking a meal for 6 people.
The fridge is rather small too.
However, the rooms are lovely.
