I would like to provide feedback for my cottage stay, how can I do this?

We are committed to featuring quality holiday cottages and that's why we will ask you to kindly complete a Customer Satisfaction Questionnaire on your return. Customer comments and suggestions provide valuable information on how their owners can further improve the holiday cottages and we can improve our service. Please take the time to fill in your questionnaire- your opinion is valued. If your booking has been made on our website, or you have registered an e-mail address with us, then you will receive the questionnaire via email.

The Virtual Tours will not work - what is wrong?

If you are experiencing problems viewing a virtual tour, the following information may be useful to assist in resolving the problem.

Java Virtual Machine is a piece of software required to play the virtual tours featured on our website. Some versions of Windows, particularly early editions of Windows XP, do not include support for Java Virtual Machine.

Now Microsoft have resolved the issue and users can obtain the Java Virtual Machine software with Service Pack 1, part of the 'Windows Update' available to all Windows users to keep their computers up to date with the latest fixes and improvements. Simply connect to the Internet and click on 'Windows Update' in your start menu.

Some users may also experience problems if they have disabled Java in their Internet Browser settings. The default setting is to have Java enabled, but some users choose to disable this. To check, click 'Tools' and then 'Internet Options'. If you are not using Windows or would like to find out more about Java, visit www.java.com
