Interaction with guests
When we are at home, we meet guests in person when they arrive. Guests are welcome to come up to the house with any queries. Sometimes we might be away when guests arrive and we then make arrangements for them to be met by a friend of ours. If this is not possible we will leave the property accessible for them when they arrive.
Other things to note
Parents of young children should be aware of the safety of their children at all times especially as there are some ponds at the property.
