The arrival time is between 5pm and 7pm and the departure time at 10 am (or 11am for short stays of 2/3 nights).
Late arrival is possible. Please contact Liz to inform her of this.
Early arrival is not possible.
Why ? : I can not organise an earlier arrival because all the cottages need to be prepared, some maintenance work must be done and we need to mow the lawns and do some garden work so that we will not make noise during your stay to ensure that it is peaceful and enjoyable.
