A lovely house and pool

4 of 5
Really nice house and made so great by the care of Terry and Ann who were looking after the house (and us!). There were some niggles. For such an expensive house compared to several local properties, the level of equipment was poor. For example, there was no microwave or dishwasher. There was not even a food processor or juice extractor or trays. Most of the supplied items were of generally poor quality - the saucepans were mostly of thinner steel than the tins emptied into them.
