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
