A good house that could be a GREAT house with a little attention to detail made by the owners. A good level of equipment, but 'dated and worn' is an honest description. Nothing will disappoint, but nothing will delight. Main road is busy in early morning - don't expect quiet lay-ins.

Lovely large and very well equipped house, fantastic garden and most rooms face the garden with lovely large windows. The front double bedroom face the road which is very noisy at weekends and is a busy road. Lovely ensuite master bedroom and kitchen has everything you would ever need. A great base for your holiday.
