Interaction with guests
Where possible I like to meet and greet guests upon arrival. This enables me to answer any questions you may have about the cottage and facilities. I can also provide advice with regards to the nearest supermarket, eating establishments and help with things to do and see in the area. For late check in (after 8pm) or if I am unavailable keys can be collected from a secure key safe.
