    Mr Mark Taylor, Hornchurch,
    "Perfect location and very a nicely kept, homely cottage. "
    Mr Keith Bowden, Broadstone,
    "The cottage was very close to everything so driving was not necessary to go out in the evening - all shops, café's, bars and the seafront were on the doorstep. The cottage was clean, tidy and easy to just drop into and use. The car park permit was a big bonus!"
    Mrs Dorothy Behrend, Nottingham,
    "We could do walks from Bowness and didn't have to always go in the car to find a walk. We liked the large, beautiful bedrooms and comfortable beds. We also liked to be able to use the dishwasher and especially the washing machine and dryer. The location of the cottage is excellent and so near the shops and restaurants. We liked being able to use the parking permit at the car park too, which was easy to walk to."
    Mr Andrew Mackay, Henfield, West Sussex
