                                                                                                      4 of 5

The enclosed garden is essential for our dogs. The bungalow has a very pleasant conservatory which is set out as a dining area. ( blinds would be a welcome addition) The kitchen was clean and well equipped....thank you for the welsh cakes/milk. ( a cafetière and a small milk pan would make a real difference for little cost) The lounge was very comfortable as was the bed in the main bedroom. The bathroom was very modern and clean
