Interaction with guests
The property key safe box code for access and directions which you must bring with you prior to arrival are made available to you on this site prior to arrival. I am Joy your host: invariably present to meet, greet and show you the property and how the Hot Tub works and share my wealth of local information with you. Milk, tea & biscuits on arrival. Please note: Please remove any fake tan or spray tan before arrival as it spoils the water and stains the Hot Tub. I am available 24/7 and always at the end of my mobile. Regret no pets. Adult only. *please note if reading historic reviews there is no longer a breakfast basket - which is reflected in the reduced tariff for new bookings made since 1st May 2018.
