Interaction with guests
As the key will be in the door on the day of your arrival, you can simply let yourselves in. I will pop along after you arrive to say hello, and to show you how the hot tub and sauna works, and to answer any initial questions you may have. I can also recommend things to do in the area, although you will find lots of information in the house. I will then leave you to enjoy your stay, however I am always on hand if you should have any further questions.
