Interaction with guest

We have a coded lock box which guests use to pick up their keys as this gives them greater flexibility. However, if I am here when you arrive and you wish, I am of course, delighted to welcome our guests and show them up to the cottage. If guests want additional local information I am very happy to provide it; there is also a file of information in the cottage.
