Interaction with guests
My partner and I only live about a 20 minute drive away so we can easily be on hand if needed but we both work nearly full time as teachers so unfortunately we do not have a vast amount of time to interact with guests. We are keen to make sure your holiday is the best it can be and happy to answer any questions you may have.We have a keysafe which means that you can check in whenever is convenient after 2pm ( or possibly earlier by arrangement depending on whether I have had guests in the cottage just before your arrival) so you may not see us at all!
