Interaction with guests
We live on site, so when you arrive we will show you to your cottage - hand you the key and the sumptuous breakfast provisions and leave you to enjoy. Some guests wave as they pass in and out of the property. Others take advantage of the hosted breakfast or wine and cheese platter. The choice is yours. As we know you will enjoy the extensive gardens, you may well find us either pruning, or planting.
