Thanks for your comments. I have new sofas on order which will be here later this month! I've re-adjusted the toilet seat too so it's fine now. Can't do anything about the weather and the water level I am afraid!! Glad you enjoyed your stay.

The Dovecote is in a beautiful setting and was perfect for the quiet family respite and downtime we needed. The cottage was very clean and well appointed. A lovely touch to have artwork on the walls for sale and we did indeed purchase a painting!...More
