Interaction with guests
Some of our guests like help in planning their itinerary others like to browse the many brochures you will find in the cottage. There are two sets of brochures divided into 'dogs allowed' and 'sorry no dogs', we are happy to look up particular events and print off tickets etc. We try to fit the needs of the guests, guests decide the level of interaction they prefer. All guests will receive information we think maybe helpful on the way here, e.g. the postcodes of supermarkets you may want to visit as you get close, Internet website links etc.

This was the best property we have stayed in in over 20 years. The owners were seen almost daily and were very friendly.
