The wreck is a fabulous stylish cottage - ideal for 4 adults or two families with young children - sofas seat 4 - great bonus of Netflix! Steep stairs should be noted and that kitchen is on another floor to dining table and bathroom two or three floors down from bathroom! However wash hand basins in bedrooms and upstairs toilet make it all quite manageable! Nice place, great location!

We try to make this as clear as possible on our website decsription, but for anyone interested in booking this property, if this is a concern, please do not hesitate to contact the sales team for further information. Thank you again for your lovely comments. Hopefully we will see you back here soon. Tanya, Customer Services
