Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a note to say a very big thank you for our wonderful stay at Alexander Cottage! After our 13 hour drive the house was a welcome and peaceful relief. We thought the cottage was great and the area fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful house and place with us. Warm wishes, Katie and Simon.

Just a quick note to thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful holiday house. We had a wonderful time and consider ourselves privileged to have experienced such a pristine area, you are indeed lucky. I have come away with tons of photos and beautiful memories. Thank you. Andrew and Therese (Brisbane, Australia)

We are just back from a weeks stay at the cottage and wanted to let you know what a great time we had. We loved the cottage and the area, and spent a lot of our sunny evenings sitting up at the garden area. Our kids had a great adventure - they're 4 and 2.
