Comfortable stay

Nice place, recommend replacing kettle and toaster as they’re really used/lid cracked. Previous guest left rubbish in the jumpers provided for guests to use. Crockery had crusty food all over it; suggest rewashing it all. Very nice spa bath and comfortable beds, nice bedding. Would highly recommend despite suggestions above. Thank you.
