We stayed a few day in this lovely cottage, which offered us lots of space, spectacular birdsong and luscious gardens. The bedrooms were vast and clean. The kitchen stuff was more than adequate, and the owner and owneress were very friendly. Would have loved to stay there

Dear DadNDave: we don't agree with your comments: 1. Our place is extremely easy to find, especially because we ALWAYS give directions how to find us. This is standard procedure with EVERY booking, and so it was with yours, don't you remember? There is only one turnoff and only one road to follow, and our entrance gate cannot be missed with its large sign: "Fiddler's Green." 2. You used our Wi-Fi connection twice and as long as you wanted. So, what's your problem? 3. You had the whole house to yourself for the price of one room. So why would you then have needed to lock your room, if you could lock the house? Or do you lock all the rooms in your own house before you go out and lock the main door? Please be reasonable! Sometimes you are wondering what kind of people these modern times and the Internet rear. Perhaps e.g. those, who just like the cheap sensation to complain from a save, unassailable position, although there is nothing to complain, as the right word at the right time would have sorted out even the slightest doubt.

"ask for the double bed suite which is large and sunny and for their accommodation/sailing packages,"
"No matter what room you choose, either in the main house or the Cottage, all rooms are in perfect condition and offer great comforts. Probably, for Honeymooners and similarly oriented Folks, the "Cottage" is the best choice as it is a very cosy and snugly place."
