Response from Nigel:
Thanks for your feedback. I will certainly carry out your suggestion about a kettle etc. I see what you mean about the price and that the low rate might actually deter people. At the moment, I am aware that the outside of the house and garden is very scruffy and the inside is also in need of improvement, so I think it’s fair not to charge too much. However, with the holiday season nearly upon us, I might increase it slightly. Thanks again. I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
