    The bunk bed room states on the Hoseasons website on booking that the bunk bed can be made into twin beds on request which we requested by phone and Hoseasons added it onto the comments page yet on arrival and speaking to the owner it could not be done in our ‘Raby’ cottage for our six adult guests and never were able to with the bunk bed room. There was also insufficient oven trays, crockery and utensils for six guests and only enough for four guests.

    Great holiday, fabulous location, lots to do locally, but great pool and facilities on site, would definitely go again!
