Boltons Tarn: "Thank you for the use of Bolton's Tarn. We had a very enjoyable week and the weather was very kind to us so that was a huge bonus. Our young dog Oscar, a Hungarian Vizsla, had the time of his life. It was nice to come back to your cosy and comfortable chalet at the end of each busy day and relax with a few beers and a bottle of wine. Very much home from home. The badger called on us making two visits of about twenty minutes each time. We were amazed at how tame he was even when we opened the doors and ventured out onto the verandah. The bird life was a constant source of interest throughout the week."
