Interaction with guests
The keys will be in a key safe for your arrival although I will come to see you to make sure you have found everything you need. I live locally so will be on hand if there is anything I can help with. You will find milk, tea, coffee and sugar at the house on arrival and a treat in the cake tin. I ask for childrens names and ages as they receive a little surprise gift on arrival. If you are celebrating a special occasion please let me know if you want me to get anything in for you, I have been sent banners and balloons before to put up as a surprise on arrival, so if you have any special requests please ask.
