"Owner could not be bothered getting back to me"
So could not book - the following bit of rubbish should get me to 50 characters - but will not be published anyway.… More
I do apologize for not getting back to you, this is due to the fact that holiday lettings did not send an email alert notifying me that an inquiry had been made, and therefore I did not enter their inbox on there site, to respond. It is not our intention to ignore any inquires. how ever it is not always possible to respond,ie a bereavement in the family or loss of internet etc.
Once again I do apologize.

"Forget any apprehensions."
Have recently returned from an extremely pleasant week spent at Eeyores Corner. The location was excellent - quiet and restful, which was exactly what we wanted. Property was very comfortable and obviously maintained to a very high standard by the owners, Dave and Jilly Rosenberg who had provided everything that was necessary within the house. Our hosts made us most welcome (including a much appreciated welcome pack, wine, milk etc.) and thoroughly explained all the general workings of the property and guidelines for making the most of our stay. We found Dave and Jilly the best of "neighbours" being both very helpful and concerned that we enjoy our stay yet without in any way being obtrusive. We would highly recommend this holiday rental.
