Interaction with guests
Pavilion Cottage was formerly two cottages incorporating the Pavilion for a private cricket ground. We rent number 2 as a holiday let & live in number 1 ourselves. If we are home I will probably greet you and let you in to the cottage, if I'm not available I will have sent you a code for a key safe (located in the entrance porch) so you can let yourselves in & get settled. Either way you will find a welcome letter with your tea tray, usually including bread, milk, tea (Yorkshire of course) jam, butter & a homemade cake, this provides you with a bit of information about your stay and the wifi code. I am happy to research activities etc for your stay (as required) give you contact details for a hot tub hire company, taxis etc.
