"We are all safely back in our various homes and wanted to say a big thank you to all of the staff at Cober, who looked after us. During these very difficult times it has been hard to take the plunge to get back out into the world but we have known and visited Cober for so many years now (me over 60years) that it was to you we turned. We all felt safe, well looked after and comfortable and know how hard it must have been for everyone concerned to make the necessary health and safety arrangements for guests and staff. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are already thinking about another visit soon, pandemic willing! I would be grateful if you would pass on our thanks to all concerned."Gladwell Family - August 2020
