Interaction with Guests
We assume most guests book the cottage to relax and sometimes to get away from everyday life. The cottage is self contained and so unless there is a specific issue that needs addressing we tend to keep to ourselves. Often we will greet the guests on arrival but if we are not at that moment in time we will tend to leave guests alone.
Bed linen and towels supplied but no face cloths. Please drive slowly (20mph) along Long Lane and full instructions regarding power supply to the cottage, electronic entrance gate codes & internet will be supplied on booking in the house manual. The cottage has it's own keys and you are welcome to come and go as you please. Please email/call regarding any other specific needs such as an iron, hairdryer or microwave as these are available on request.
