Nice little house in need of a "spring clean"
Nice position in the town, but overall impression was it was rather dirty and scruffy. The oven had not been cleaned and when we used it was very smoky and smelly. The back yard was very dirty and I appreciated that it was dog friendly but you could certainly know by the smell. The bed linen was creased and the carpets were stained. Such a shame!
