4/5 Good

Good but not great
Only stayed one night and it was pleasant enough, room looked a little bit like photo but some details were missing, size of room was good, plenty of storage space, lots of steps up to property, some uneven and could have been cleared for easier access, damp around window frames but nothing excessive, DVD player was broken, property was preparing to shut as owners were expecting a baby so may explain some of above, hope all goes well

Enjoyable stay
Really enjoyed our one night stay. Chris was very welcoming and in these covid times did a really good breakfast served in the bedrooms. Slightly out of centre with steep access but this is pre notified. Would certainly recommend.
