The cottage was perfect, even though we had snow and the weather was bitterly cold the cottage remained warm and cosy.

The cottage was better than we expected. The owners were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them.

Location was perfect for our purposes. The accommodation was clean, tidy and well equipped. Owners were very friendly and nothing was too much bother for them - made a big difference.
Mr Oliver, Dunbar, January 2013
The communication and local information received from the owner of the cottage. She could not have been more helpful and just so keen to make us feel welcome. She even left a pint of milk and two ready meals for our arrival and notified the local Public House that we would want to eat there. The service she offered was second to none.
