I didn’t like sharing the property with a Hen’s lunch even though they were well behaved and not too loud! I didn’t feel we could use the kitchen, lounge facilities as it was decorated for the party! It would be great to stay with a few friends. It was very comfortable and wehad a good night’s sleep. xx
