    “Nice place.”

    Shame there was no proper shower on the 2nd floor. Also the heating didn't seem to be working on the top floor so it was a bit cold. Was a bit annoying that there were no provisions in the kitchen e.g. salt, pepper, olive oil etc... Also I think there is a problem with the oven door - it doesn't seem to close properly. Aside from that we had a good time and blockley was a lovely village and thanks.
