Interaction with guests
I have a separate flat on the property which I sometimes make use of during the summer months (Oct-Feb). My daughter (who manages the property) lives nearby and is only a phone call away. She & her husband are a great source of information about "things to do - and places to go" and especially about the walking and rock climbing areas in Montagu.
Other things to note
We ask guests to please not smoke in the house. You welcome to do so outside.
