    We had a great few days on the island & really enjoyed your little cottage. All our needs were provided for. The beds were very comfortable, bathroom facilities spacious & modern & lovely linen a treat. Thank you for letting us stay. Could I suggest a large salad bowl would be a great addition to the crockery :)
