Justin and Vivienne were an absolute pleasure to host. Had it not been for their cars we would not have known if they were even there. They were most respectful and friendly and left the property in great shape. Thank you

Thank you so much. You were so unobtrusive we didn't even know if you were there or not. Not even a woof from your lovely spaniels. An absolute pleasure to host you. And your gifts were very touching. Best wishes and thanks again.
