Interaction with guests
You can be left all alone or spend some time with us... its up to you...
Respect... we are a non smoking house, hope you can respect our wishes.
We prefer that guests don't drink while staying with us.
Please give us enough notice before deciding to have you here. We have had to decline a number of requests simply because we haven't been given enough time to plan and prepare for guests. Some requests where for the same day!! So - please dont be offended when we say 'no'. We would love to have you, but please give us good notice - lets say about 2-3 weeks...
Access to our home will be sorted on arrival. Please advise of arrival time so someone will be here. We will do our best to make your stay comfortable, but please note that we are not a BnB breakfast and wont be running this like a business. Just freindly folk who like to travel and are opening our home to other travellers.
Please let us know your plans for arrival when you email us. Please give us resonable notice - we have had people wanting to stay with us the next day after emailing us, but sometimes we make plans that mean we may not be able to accomodate. Please tell us a little bit about yourself(s), everthing is negotiable. For example, our summer house has be used for family stays and can be used for longer periods if needed... just ask.
