Even though the pups could not sell alcohol we still had a brilliant time

The house was very attractively decorated, but some of the basics were disappointing: the beds were small and uncomfortable, I fell into the bedroom on entry (and hit my head on the bed) as the step was invisible in the dark, the doors were strangely flimsy and didnt close properly, and we spent the days in near-darkness rather than have every passRead moreer-by peering in at the windows. It was also awkward to have to walk half a mile to the car every day, as I dont walk comfortably. Perhaps the biggest thing lacking (for us) was a decent music system. Hide
