One disappointment was the lack of an oven which restricted our meal preparation somewhat. Overall comfortable, quiet. Thanks

The house is spacious and a little quirky, the village very quiet with shops 5 km away. Overall we had a good time. Do consider a Harz card which gives discounts nearby and a bit further afield.
