Lovely location & house. One issue we did have was the hot tub, it was cold on arrival and despite a phone call and assurance it would be ready for later in the evening it was not, so lost an evening of use,The temperature is set at 37 which is not warm in the winter! The hot tub was neither topped up with chemicals or checked whilst we were there Read moreand smelt like the nearby river the next day after only 1 evenings use, which was a shame as easily rectified.
