It felt homely and comfortable and lovely and warm. The only thing I thought of that could be improved was to sharpen the kitchen knives. That's how good it was as that is all I can think of. Thank you.

Property had everything you might need (except gin and tonic glasses!) and was comfortable. Easy to operate and flexible central heating controls particularly appreciated. Everything in good order and clean.
