    “Lovely apartment cleverly created from the original garage and a part of the owner's house.”

    Felt very private and was surprisingly quiet for a housing estate. Friendly and helpful hosts. Spotlessly clean. Two suggestions to improve: the fridge is nearing its use by date, and you need an electric towel radiator in the shower room separate from the central heating, as this doesn't come on in summer. Damp towels for a week! The local pub serves really good meals too.

    Thank you for your feedback, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The fridge is PAT tested once a year by a qualified electrician, we also check and clean this ourselves at every changeover. We aim to be as environmentally friendly as possible, however will take your suggestions into consideration when making any changes to the shower-room. We supply a clothes airer indoors and a washing line externally. Thank you for sharing your comments and suggestions. Property Owner
