Guest Book Comments

What a wonderful, relaxing week we've had in your beautiful cottage. Thank you so much for being such warm and welcoming hosts and for providing the little touches that make such a difference. We are now devotees of Aga cooking and Ian is (finally) the wood burner king! We have been so warm and comfortable, even during the deluge earlier in the week.We'll be sure to recommend you.

We have enjoyed our stay at Derwin and are sorry that the time has come when we must leave. Thank you for your hospitality and care, we very much appreciate it. The cottage and the surroundings are wonderful, simply could not be bettered.

We wanted thanks to come to you again for our stay in Derwin. We wanted Harrys first holiday to be special and we certainly left feeling happy and relaxed. The peace and quiet of your cottages, the surroundings and the comfort of our break will be bringing us back again soon and would love to help with the animals next time.

We've had a wonderful time in your splendid cottage. The last days of glorious sunshine have more than made up for the initial rain. Derwin has been a wonderful place to celebrate Mum's 90th birthday.We were here a few years ago and certainly will not leave it long to come back.
