This has been the 2nd time that I have stayed with Julie and it remains the same value for money and it is what it is, It is a nice and quiet area and Julies description is accurate. It was nice to get to see and chat to Julie this time.
Julie was a welcoming and relaxed host. The room was as Julie described. Her house is in a quiet area but there Pubs and a town nearby if you need it.
It all went very well. Julie is a very relaxed, welcoming host. Even though the place is being extensively redecorated there was no inconvenience at all.
I only met Julie very briefly when I artived and when I left in the morning. She was very nice and made sure I felt at home. Julie was very clear about everything and the room was comfortable and very good value.
We were made to feel very welcome and would be quite happy to return to Julies again should the occasion arise
