We are pleased that you liked the attention you received. However, as to the refurbishment you may have noticed that some has already been started, for which we had a notice apologising for this. Not sure which bed you are referring to, however, we did go out of our way to accommodate your large party, sleeping 7 in a room usually only accommodating 4-5, even putting in an extra bed. As you say the house is classic, and we decorate it according to its origins.
Thanks for your review Mick, no we do not advertise as being the Ritz, if we did it would cost a lot more! We like to provide a warm comfortable environment as we would like if we stayed in a guesthouse. If guests can make suggestions on improvements/personal things they would like us to provide we could consider them, but each year we try to improve with new decorations etc. We have a plan in the summer to do some exterior renovations and then some interior, but this should not put people off coming. You will be made very welcome to our house which is afterall where we live.
