Thank you so much for your review and kind words. We try to make Fursdon Cottage cool and comfortable in the summer and warm and cosy in the winter. It really does have the most amazing views and we never take them for granted nor tire of them. Our housekeeping team works hard to make sure that the cottage is spotless for each visitor's arrival and we look forward to seeing you back at Fursdon any time.

So glad you enjoyed your extra long stay at Fursdon. I love your phrase - 'mind blowing'! Sorry that you found the WiFi a bit slow. Mostly people who stay are on holiday so don't mind our 'rural' speeds but as you were working I can see that this could have been frustrating. Thanks for taking the trouble to write a review.
