Interaction with guests
I will unfortunately not be able to meet you as I do not live nearby. However I have very capable housekeepers who are responsible for The Lodge and guests. Just before your stay I will email you the housekeepers name and mobile number so that you can contact her to meet you if you would prefer this or if you have any problems or general questions you would like answered. I will also send you the key box number so that you can access the key for the front door on your arrival.
