"Peaceful and almost lived up to our expectations.…"
A decent conversion of an old building reached down a forest track and set on the English-Welsh border. Fairly easy to find and the usual welcome hamper was there on our arrival but so too was a somewhat overpowering smell of wet-dog. I open all the windows, roam the house armed with some expensive perfume which I strategeically dab about the place and finally, on the second day, load up on scented candles from the local supermarket (a mile or two away). This is a useful lesson to me. Next time I search for self-catering holidays I must tick the box which says 'no pets'!
