We also know that there are some good options for people that... More

I try to always give the positive about places, although in some instances this is difficult. Abbot's Brae is a place that is in transition and the new owners clearly recognise this and are working towards renovating the place, which I think will be great. But at present the decor in our room was dreary and needs an urgent update,... More
