Interaction with guests
I meet all my guests at the property, to give them their keys and show them how everything works and answer any questions they may have. It does not matter what time of day or night my guests arrive I will be happy to meet them. If they need collected at Newcastle Bus Station that is not a problem. I live within a 15 minute drive away from the cottage, so I am generally on hand, but I am only ever a phone call away.
