    “We have a lovely holiday at The Walton.”

    The pool was an extra bonus but no mention on the listing that it closes 4.30pm daily. The bedrooms were nice with all bathrooms newly refurbished with showers, although we would have preferred at least one bath. Very nice size kitchen, but the dining room was unnecessary cramped with lots of spare tables and chairs. The games room consists of only one table tennis table but no balls provided. Would also have been nice had there been some board games in the property.
