Agree kitchen floor clearly needs replacing, and this will be soon be done, in meantime although it looks marked, it is mopped clean. Some other rooms have orginal old polished floorboards, dust can appear from nowhere!

Great location and perfect for families. The place is in need of some decorating but overall it has everything we needed. The kitchen was fully equipped and the beds were comfy. We enjoyed our stay at David’s.

Was a good location. We specifically chose a place with a garden for the nice summers nights, however could not even use it at all as it was so overgrown. The house could definitely do with a good clean and perhaps a upgrade. Not sure if I can recommend it to anyone.

Response from David:
The rear garden could be more kindly described as 'wild' or 'natural' , it is certainly not manicured, but is perfectly useable. The old kitchen door creates dust and lets in dust from outside, it is being replaced in the next few days.

Good and obvious suggestions David, Thanks, I will post a note on those things very soon and put a 'house manual' in the place. Glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise.
