What can I say that has not been said already!  Our week here has gone far too quick!  Whilst here we have been to Edinburgh (brilliant, fringe festival bizarre but worth seeing, as is the dungeons), meeting the lovely Christopher Rainbow (hiring his tandem bikes, hard work but so worth it!), gorgeous walks, birds, deer and of course the cheeky horse and chickens.  We managed to top up our tans and relax in between!  Peter and Christine, you’re lovely people who go out of your way for others, may God bless you and keep you in his heart.  Thank you, we will be back and we will be recommending you to all! Ashley, Ashleigh, Jeanette and Jack, East Yorkshire – August 2013

A beautiful cottage in beautiful surroundings.  Tiore far exceeded our expectations.  Christine and Peter have gone the extra mile to make Tiore welcoming and comfortable.  We have felt very much at home.  We have also been very impressed with how child friendly Tiore is.  Ella has been catered for exceptionally well and she has had a greata time.  It has been good to be able to relax and not worry about Ella’s safety in the cottage.  Tiore really is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
