We want to make the check-in process as easy as possible for our guests, to ensure their safety and enjoyment while they stay in our home. If at all possible, can intending guests please let us have an approximate time, so we can endeavour to arrange that all guests don’t arrive at the same time? We would welcome guests between 4.30 pm and 8pm every day but we can facilitate a later check-in, if required. In addition, we will also need to collect full contact details for all our guests. This is required in the unlikely event that there is a need for contact tracing at any time in the future, due to the pandemic. We require names, addresses, Email addresses and telephone numbers for all guests. Thank you for assisting us with this information. It will be held in a secure place, and will be securely disposed of in due course.
