Interaction with guest

We love interacting with our guests but the beauty of Alfie's Cottage is that it is a home from home and you also have your own private space. We love sharing tips with guests and advising them on what they can do to get the most out of our surrounding areas. We are around most of the time but occassionally are away on weekends. We have a fantastic security system and 24 hour security patrols that give guests peace of mind if we are away.
