Interaction with guests
Barry and Margaret are very happy to chat and advise on local facilities, things to do etc. (Or alternatively let guests totally do their own thing) . One of us will generally meet people when they arrive and do a quick show round - we can generally then tell if people want to chat or be left in peace! We also leave guests our mobile numbers and encourage guests to contact us ,should they need any help whatsoever. We also usually check by text that all is well at some point during the guests stay.
