However a few issues, we incurred were the bed not made, no towels, etc, no logs, heating on low, so house was a little chilly on arrival. As we arrived late, it was a little inconvenient to have to go out again to buy linen logs etc.when we spoke to the housekeeper (we think), the following morning, she did look somewhat perplexed at seeing us and stated she was not expecting us, hence no bed made etc. All turned out fine, and we had a lovely couple of days, crisp frosty winter mornings, but lots of sunshine. What more could one ask.
