Interaction with guests
When the full payment has been made, we send visitors our Information Pack. We have put this together very carefully, so that guests can feel at home straight away and there are answers to many questions you may have. It details what you will find at the lodge and how to use equipment, if necessary. There are ideas for places to visit, activities, local places to eat and drink and what you may need to bring. The key code to the lodge is given here too. We live in Manchester but can always be contacted by phone or email and in emergencies, Limefitt staff will be available to help.
