Overall a great place for a short break away. Generally tidy, but could pay more attention to hoovering behind furniture and could do with more plates and cooking utensils. There are lots of things to do in the area which is great. Lastly, the convenience shop is pretty small so I advise buying food prior to arrival.

Cabin needs attention to detail ie enough plates ,bowls,cutlery for occupents staying. Bathroom cupboard tired and needs replacing as rotting at the bottom. Toilet was leaking. House keeping did not clean the cobwebs and spiders away. This was my first job on arriving. We had now towels in the cabin on arrival had to wait till gone 10 on Sunday to have them delivered. Bigger TV in living room as it looks like it was replaced as there were holes in the wall. Like I said attention to detail.
However we had a good week and these little things are big things for customers.
However with these easy fixes resolved it would have been tens all round. I'm not a meaner but you need to know. I would appreciate a response on this if I may.

Kind Regards
