I am sorry you found you stay here was unsatisfactory and wished we could have talked to you about the issues you raise. Briefly I can only assume it was such a wet night that everything smelled damp as I can see no sign of damp now. Our water comes from springs on the hill which is why it tastes so good but it does appear brownish sometimes when there has been heavy rain. It is filtered and is regularly checked. I 'm afraid I wrongly assumed you would be coming into the our house for breakfast and therefore left you no supplies...my mistake!.. I would have been only too happy to provide you with necessities. I will add to the description that there is no mobile signal, normally I tell people to use our phone whenever they want but as you say it was a wet night and I suspect we both wanted to snuggle up in front of good fires and I failed to mention it. I hope you will venture back into College Valley when the sun is shining and see it at its best. If you let me know in advance I will give you my best chocolate cake, scones and tea!
best wishes Eildon
