Interaction with Guests
I try to be here to welcome guests. If I am not my neighbours will see you in. I am here to answer any questions and help you find your way around the area. I am happy to chat, but do not assume you are here to talk to me but to explore the area!
The village is really friendly, kindness is abundant here. Every day I wake up feeling excited to look across the valley and take in the beauty of it all.
See above, Local buses are very regular and the train is convenient if people have no transport of their own.
This is a self contained annex alongside my cottage in a quiet rural village. Guests are self catering. You are asked to be respectful of my neighbours and of course my annex! Please would you bring slippers to wear indoors. Many thanks.
