Miss Bell, Edinburgh, September 2012
Just to say a huge thank you for this excellent cottage! The owners had left us a fantastic welcome pack of groceries and wood for the fire. A really nice touch. The cottage itself wanted for nothing, everything was in brand new condition, spotlessly clean and cosy.
