Guest comments

It just occurred to me that I forgot to write in the guest book! I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your lovely cottage and all the small touches you made which ensured we had a fantastic weekend! I could have slept for days in the comfy bed and we watched some great old movies on DVD as well (great idea not connecting TV!). We will definitely be back!

Thanks again to you and Walter.



We fell in love with your cottage

Hello Kay

Just a short message to say a very sincere thankyou for the opportunity to stay in your cottage at the weekend. Malcolm and I had a wonderful time and fell in love with your cottage and its surrounds.

There is a group of us that went to school together and we get together every couple of months for dinner.  One of the group suggested spending our next time together at Sevenhill. There were 7 of us plus partners who all got together and had a wonderful weekend.

I am sorry we didn’t get a chance to meet you both, but we are definitely going to come again so hopefully we can meet you then.

Again thankyou for helping us to have a great getaway weekend.

We loved every minute of it especially the time at the cottage.

A Wonderful Break

Dear Kay and Walt,

Thank you for having us stay in The Heritage Cottage. We had a wonderful and relaxing stay in the Cottage. You have done an extraordinary job in restoring the cottage.

Your gardens are magnificent and we enjoyed our relaxing walk in the evenings looking at the many different varieties of roses and plants you have.

Thank you once again for a an enjoyable stay and we will gladly recommend The Heritage Garden to our family and friends to stay,

Kind Regards Carolyn and Peter

Poem from the guests

Nothing should we alter of this station, gentle Walter

The hard work of creation, tearing down and building up

A heritage salvation, an overflowing cup

Of character and beauty, that exudes a sort of duty

To maintain an older story in a stone and wooden glory.

So thanks for all the sharing, and Kaymarie’s warm caring

With coffee by the fire, and Basil. Who could tire?

It is a wonderful day in the garden with the roses blooming and masses of foxgloves and annuals and perennials.

Come and see the new developments and support a charity.

And a great chance to have cups of tea and coffee, and wine and cheese and chat with all your garden minded friends!!

We will have the Urn on and you can help yourselves to tea and coffee.

Hope to see you here.

Kay and Walt
