Pat and Colin are most welcoming hosts, supplying wonderful titbits of information before our arrival and during our arrival. The house had everything we needed. Little touches that are not usually found at other similar accommodation were an abolute delight.

We had such a wonderful stay at Gentle Presence. Our hosts, Pat and Colin, were so welcoming and helpful, we wanted for nothing. The house has such character and is so comfortable, it really feels like home away from home. The kids also had such a good time in the spacious garden! We will absolutely be back!
