    The owner was very helpful but the house lacked attention to detail. Cutlery, crockery etc, dirty and needed to be washed first. Glasses were just leftovers with hardly 2 matching. Generally everything lacked any finesse and was tired. The pool and games room and the bbq area did however come up to expectation and saved the day. The children were very happy as a result although nowhere to play ball games.

    We had a great stay, nice spacious house for 8’of us. It was comfortable and had everything we needed. Perfect for a little get together with friends.

    We arrived about 3.30 pm and quite honestly freezing cold as they had just put on the electric heaters despite knowing that we were arriving that afternoon and the swimming pool area was cold so my disabled grandson was unable to use it Work was needed to upgrade one bathroom especially the toilet All in all the property was rather tired

    The cottage itself was lovely, the pool excellent and generally very comfortable. My big problem with it was that it was freezing when we got there and the electricity is charged separately and taken from the £200 cash deposit you have to give on arrival. Considering that everything is electric I was really worried that the bill would be huge, and having already paid quite a lot for the weekend, it seemed excessive. There was also a problem with the cooker, but that was solved quickly and luckily nothing happened. Having said all that, I would book again, but in spring/summer :)

    We had a good time but the accommodation was functional and 'un-charming'. Some of the beds were extremely uncomfortable.

    Diablo was even better than we expected. The living-room was spacious and the kitchen very well equipped. We made good use of the games room and the swimming pool. There were many lovely walks through the fields around the pretty village, which has a community shop which was open early mornings, a Post Office, several pubs, a tea room and of course, a magnificent church. The field belonging to Four Winds led to the railway line crossing where we had a good view of the steam train as that is where the engine has to change ends.
