  • “Lie most rental cottages, it really needs a single big pot (in the kitchen) that's big enough to hold a casserole for six people.”

    Trying to cook up a chili or casserole across several smaller saucepans is frustrating. But apart from that, Skyfell was extremely lovely, and we enjoyed every moment there from first to last.
