    “Overall it was a great stay, 2nd time staying here int the last few years.”

    One thing we did feel a bit let down with was the Christmas decorations. For a house of that size we was expecting a lot more than the smallish sized Christmas tree we got. Even a quarter of the lights didn’t work meaning the bottom of the tree wasn’t lit up. With some children in the group we had to make a trip out to get some more decs especially table decorations.

    One thing we did feel a bit let down with was the Christmas decorations. For a house of that size we was expecting a lot more than the smallish sized Christmas tree we got. Even a quarter of the lights didn’t work meaning the bottom of the tree wasn’t lit up. With some children in the group we had to make a trip out to get some more decs especially table decorations. So maybe for future stays in December it maybe nice to have extra lights or even outdoor tree on the drive. Garlands on the staircase? another tree in the lounge with a bigger tree in the kitchen and some table decorations. Just a thought as this is the only area we felt let down on. The other part that you need to know is that the bedroom above the lounge to the left of the stairs that lead to the top floor, there was a smell of drains when the shower was in use. So maybe it may need looking at to find the source on that. Everything else was great and an excellent stay. Thanks Paul
