    We were supposed to be away this weekend and booked Strawberry Hill Farm near Durham, we've stayed there before as it is handy for visiting relatives and is a lovely site with super owners. We paid in full in advance as we usually do.....

    Anyway we had to cancel at very very short notice and I phoned them to let them know fully expecting to lose the deposit. The owners are incredible..... were so supportive and have held over the deposit for the next trip. Things are pretty sh*tty here and this act of kindness and generosity has made me well up and shed some cathartic tears.

    Bouquets for Strawberry Hill, Durham.

    That's really nice not unlike your kind offer to us if we were to visit the borders

    Perhaps other people just see you as the kind caring people that you are and treat you likewise (y)
