Interaction with guests
Before your arrival we will forward directions and information, on the day of your arrival we will either meet you, hand over the keys and show you around or if you prefer, leave the keys in safe place for you. We've found that our guests sometimes prefer to be met and sometimes prefer to be left alone - you let us know and we're happy to do either.
During your stay we are on hand if needed, in the main house, however the cottage is very private sitting with its back to the house and with all of its windows and doors looking out towards the fields and woods beyond - the only time you may see us (unless you want to) is when we open up the stable in the farmyard for our geese and ducks to get out in the early am.

We had a fantastic week in Yorkshire, made even better by our stay at Dockenbush cottage. It really does have everything you could ask for to make for a very pleasant stay. Excellently furnished, lovely and warm underfloor heating, very peaceful surroundings and a fantastic host, Jo, to name a few! Jo went out of her way to make sure...
