Thanks for the kind comments. Guest comfort and enjoyment is very important to us. The furniture was replaced a couple of months ago in line with keeping the cottage interior fresh and we are especially glad you found the double bed (in the larger of the two lounge sofas) so comfortable. Did you know that returning customers qualify for a discount?

We are delighted that you enjoyed Courtside cottage and Falkland village so much. I guess we all want great value and a memorable holiday and I think most of the boxes got ticked. Golf in 2014/15 will remain free for our guests and we are pleased that the bread maker has also been well received. Thanks for your kind comments. Stewart
