"I have been meaning to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay. We thought the house was magical and we were so lucky to have it to ourselves.

Christine gave us a marvellous welcome and made sure we had all that we needed. It was most reassuring and useful to have her shop so near us.

We were extremely comfortable and felt at home from the start. We loved the attention of the hens, the cawing of the crows,

the walk down to the shore and back through the woods, the library, the piano and so much else. It was like a dream come true.
I have already recommended it to our local ‘Squire’ and will continue to refer people to your web site.

You have a lovely set of photographs there and of course we have hundreds of our own taken as we visited the incomparable sites

and enjoyed the beauty and peace of the islands.
With all good wishes and very many thanks again for enabling us all to have an unforgettable holiday,
Hugh and Joan."  - 8th June 2013
