Reviewed by C 5th July 2019

The house was in a fantastic location, just a few minute walk to the town centre. The house was really clean and there were a few nice touches to the accommodation. Toilet roll, kitchen roll, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets to name a few. There were lots of pictures on the wall making it feel homely. The use of space in the kitchen was excRead moreellent and we spent many evenings playing games there. The property asked for black bin only so no recycling. Hide
