Landlord was courteous and would deal with any problems promptly. Excellent as student accommodation. Recommended.Sign in to comment on this review

On the surface, this is a great house. Huge top floor bedroom, lake views and a generous back garden.
Unfortunately it is also beset by problems. Huge gaps in the door frames (up to 2 inches) and gaps around the window seals meant that the house was freezing cold, especially the main middle bedroom with the gaps plugged by blutac as best as possible (agency were not bothered about the gaps or freezing temperatures). The downstairs toilet would once a month continually flush scalding hot water for a few days while flooding the carpet, and of course there was the random circular hole in the top bedroom floor (carpeted over) that was haphazardly mended with a strip of wood (still wouldn't step on it if I were you). Combined with the burglary in our back garden and this became a property we were eager to move out of ( with the agency trying to charge us for professional carpet cleaning due to a single hair on a skirting board - they even provided a photo of said lonely hair as evidence).
Pros: good sized lounge and bedrooms, lakeside, big garden, nearby amenities, very friendly neighbours, good walks nearby.
Cons: freezing cold in winter due to poorly sealed doors and windows, weird plumbing problem in the downstairs toilet, cream carpets, cream walls, burglary from the back garden, agency that will try to grab any possible penny when you move out.Sign in to comment on this review
