    Looks like the OP isn't coming back but I'll still waste a couple of minutes here. 

    Moved in, couldn't fit in our furniture as estate agents had got measurement wrong of a room. 

    That must be a tiny room if you couldn't fit your furniture in. 

    Would it be more accurate to suggest, 

    'When the furniture is in , the remaining floor space is not what we wanted'

    To have a room where furniture can't physically fit in would be extremely obvious from your viewing. That or it's the doorway that is the issue. 

    It's a personal thing I guess, but I would never rely on the skill/honesty of an EA. 
    My eyes and a tape measure is all I need. 1 viewing is enough because all other relevant research would be done on the house prior to viewing. The viewing would only be to physically gauge the house, Living space being top of the things to check. 

    Sounds a bit like buyers remorse to me.
