Thank you for your review, however, if you remember I did say that the family room would be cramped for the 7 of you and you said that was ok. You had the choice not to book based on my recommendation. As to the outside of the property we are awaiting contractors to come and repair it. In the porch, is the remnants of a fire we had recently and although it looks dirty is smoke damage and we are waiting for contractors again to renovate. We hope you had a good time anyway.
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.
