“Staff in reception were very good. We were disappointed that barbecues were not allowed on site and this was not made clear in the brochure. Also we were not provided with bin bags and were only given 10 toilet rolls ( not enough for 10 people for one week).There were also not enough mugs. There was a lot of bird droppings on both the patio and garden furniture which we had to clean before we could use.It would also have been nice if the pool was heated.
