Interaction with guests
I live locally so am nearby if you have any problems, you will receive my mobile number when you make a booking. We'll send you directions to find the house and I usually greet you at the house so we get to meet each other. In the event of any issues in the house while you are staying (which is rare) we have local electricians, plumbers and various other tradesmen we can call on.
