Interaction with guests
A couple of weeks before you are due to arrive, we will send you an email telling you how to access the cottage and giving you lots of information about directions to Kilderkin, parking arrangements, local shops, pubs and things to do whilst in the area. We adopt a hands-off approach during your stay but we do need you to let us know if you experience any difficulties with any aspect of the cottage during your stay. We will do everything we can to put things right for you, even if it means we need to visit at a time to suit you.
