So glad your daughter's wedding went so smoothly and the house worked for you all. Happy to host you again any time in the smaller cottage (we also have another 1 bedroom just outside the back gate which is a bit more spacious) - you've got Julia's details so happy for you to contact me through her. thanks again, Kirstin
