Interaction with guests
As this is our family home, my husband and I will liaise with you before arrival and meet you at the house. We are available throughout your stay should you need us. After living here permanently for over seven years, we can also advise on excellent local restaurants, children's activities and days out.
We do not allow smoking in the house.
Some of our furniture is over 300 years old so we prefer only small pets.
