    “Just what we needed”

    Decor was a bit overdone for our taste - loads of cushions! Lovely bathroom, great garden, wonderful bird table outside our window. Breakfast room a bit cramped. Tv wasn't working, wifi was limited.

    Thank you for your review. There are many who like our decor and cushions, and with many compliments. I was told by yourselves to leave the TV and that it did not matter, even though I tried my very best to fix it.

    Yes!! even with the upgrade to fibre broadband and upgraded router we failed you!! We are some 5 miles away from the main mast, and we do have incredibly thick walls, after all the house was built in 1866!! WiFi can be difficult some days, better on others, please do not ask me why. P/J
