    - Sue, September 2023

    Really sorry you were disappointed. We do have a gardener who visits regularily to do the lawns but we intentionally do not cut hedges or overly weed during the summer months to make the environment as nature friendly as we can. The central heating is controlled from the boiler and when guests are not straying is set to twice a day in summer and is then controlled from a thermostat in the hallway. This controls costs and stops energy wastage when the property is empty. When guests are staying the boiler can be switched on from the control box in the boiler cupboard to 24 hours and the heat still controlled from the thermostat. We will put this information into the property manual when we are next at Rooks. Property Owner
