Interaction with Guests
Guests have the whole guest accommodation to themselves. There is just one interconnecting door into our own part of the house.
As we both work from home, we are nearly always around to help with any queries, recommendations of where to go or just for a friendly chat.
Our girls love to play with other visiting children and we have a trampoline and climbing frame amongst other things, that visitors can use too.
