"Hello Kent, I hope your well. I would like to thank you very much for your gracious hospitality during our stay in July. I appologise for our belated "thank you", but uni life has been an absolute whirlwind! The property is absolutely beautiful, the scenery was magical, and your culinary talent superseded all expectations! Thank you also for catering for our vegetarian requirements. Your attention to detail & hospitality made our break a very special and memorable experience. Take care and see you next time!"

"Dear Kent, You may remember the " three generations" staying with you for a couple of nights in early October? This is the senior of the trio writing from grey old UK having arrived home a week today. Our visit to your Estate was the highlight of our annual trip to Australia. I wanted to thank you for making us all feel so welcome and hope very much to visit again when we again make our "Grand Tour" in March / April. Enclosed are some momentos of our stay. Wishing you continued success in all you do..."
