During your stay
We will usually be here to welcome you on arrival although due to the coronavirus you can use the lockbox to let yourself in and we will say hi from a distance! We live in Keepers cottage and cannot see the shepherds hut in the far field and can always be contacted any time by message, phone or pressing the Cottage gate buzzer. Guests have total privacy and may or may not see us when we are putting the hens away at night in the far field or feeding the sheep and goats.
