My two sons and I loved the comfort of the house and its views of the reserve. We enjoyed seeing a new type of bird every time we left and returned. A peaceful place from where it is easy to go explore England, be it by car or from the nearby train.
This was a lovely house, with everything provided for a very pleasant stay. We found it well equipped, although we were out most of the time and did not make use of some of the facilities. However, we much appreciated using the free broadband internet. For those in the house more than we were, there were interesting books to read, SKY TV on the lovely big television in the living room, a dvd player, use of a telephone, tv in each bedroom, and, for those staying in the summer, a garden with trampoline for children.
There are good facilities for laundry with a washer/dryer, clothes airer (plus washing line in the garden for summer use) and an iron and ironing board. Also lovely thick, soft towels are provided.
We found the living room a lovely and relaxing room, even nicer than it looks in the photos, and we appreciated it very much, especially when we arrived in the evening after a long arduous journey. The owner was very welcoming, and very helpful. Also his wife was happy to help when he was not available - a very lovely family.
On the downside, we found the water pressure to be quite weak, and the shower in the en-suite was difficult to get to the correct temperature.
Also the kitchen equipment was not cleaned properly and the oven also needed cleaning. As we did not make much use of the kitchen as we either ate out or ate takeaways, we did not want to make a fuss of this. Also we had thought it had been overlooked and would be rectified after our stay (as there is a cleaner between stays). But we have no doubt the owner would have rectified this during our stay if we had informed him, as he is very friendly and helpful.
Despite the couple of downsides, on the whole this was a very enjoyable visit, and we would certainly be very happy to stay there again when next visiting the UK.
