Interaction with guests
We are available if you need us, but leave you plenty of privacy. Our house is on the same plot so we are on hand if you have any questions. The cottage is set well away from our house so you feel very private and have plenty of your own space. We have a small campsite and Shepherd's Hut so can accommodate extended family if you require.
