Response from the owner Thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday in The Coach House, and were able to frequent our lovely newly refurbished pub. I'm sorry the heating was too hot, and wish I could have popped round to sort that out for you. The bedrooms have underfloor heating which can be turned off without affecting the the living areas. You are right though, the underfloor heating is slower cooling down. Each bedroom has it's own thermostat, so the best way to achieve a cool room is to set a low temperature and keep the door shut. We hope you will come back again, and I will ensure that you know how to keep the house at the temperature you like. Glad everything else worked for you. Mary
