Just disappointed that log burner not able to be used at the moment as they are waiting for the flue to be replaced. Was abl to heat most of the rooms with the electric fires but not the bathroom and hard to dry towels etc.

We have stayed in other properties in winterton, and this will definitely go up in our top ones to stay in. It was beautifully presented and had so many thoughtful extras. The welcome hamper was a lovely surprise. We would definitely recommend this property to other people, but would mention the steep stairs, which are very traditional of the type of house, but would prove difficult to some.
