The property was of reasonable size and standard
On arrival the key safe would not open eventually about 1 hour later the cleaner located a key and we were able to enter the house.
The house was clean but very sparse, very dark dining room with only a ceiling light. Kitchen fine. Lounge, again, very sparse only ceiling light no other lighting, very small television, 1 sofa and 1 armchair, no small table. Main bedroom fine, didn't used second bedroom. Bathroom overhead shower not adjustable and spray head needed cleaning or changing, shower curtain mouldy, hairs in plug hole of washbasin. We booked this because the reviews said comfy with a lovely garden, all be it that some steep steps to garden were mention. The steep steps were in fact 13 slate steps very steep and very slippery, so not able to let our dog out in the garden. The washer/dryer were in a outbuilding which was very dark and not pleasant at all. The refuse bin was fill so I was not able to put any rubbish outside. All in all I would never recommend this property to anyone. We left the property 3 days early as we felt it very depressing to be in the house.
Therefore, would not recommend this property to anyone.
