The tame robin eats crumbs from the patio table and the heron is a regular visitor at night - under the balcony. Thank you for the fruit and cakes, etc. and Doris says thank you for the biscuits. See you next year!" April 2016

"Wow, that amazing weather - sun, sun and more sun, so different from a year ago when we had rain, rain, rain! A beautiful and relaxing week in this beautiful cottage watching the beautiful blue skies and the world go by. Lots of lovely walks in the sunshine and lots of lazy afternoons eating ice cream. Sadly no sign of the mink or the heron, but the robin joined us every day and even stole some of the husky's food. Back in October and we can't wait! p.s. the dog biscuits were a big hit." May 2016
