Perfect getaway for me and my dog as wonderful walks on the Heath 10 minutes away. Host very responsive to queries and microwave, toaster and kettle provided, so lack of a kitchen not an issue for me.

The place stands in a lovely setting near a beautiful lake. It was hard to find in the dark and entrance to drive has no lighting. The place is basic like a shed but it was just what we wanted for the weekend. It had a kettle, fridge, and microwave. Place needed cleaning as we arrived but was sorted out for us straight away. Great communication from host, answers straight away.
