Interaction with guests
Whenever possible I personally welcome all guests. I like to explain to them what they can expect from the cottage and from me. If they prefer a hands-off approach I can simply hand them the keys and give all the information they are likely to need. However I do find many guests wish to make use of my being close by when if required I can be available to suggest things to do, or provide detailed information on the cottage and the locality.

I was so pleased you enjoyed the comforts of the cottage and especially that you appreciated all that the Clun area has to offer. It is still a very much undiscovered part of England. Delighted that you will be returning next year. Roger
