Interaction with guests
We (the owners) live in an annexe/separated part of the house and have our own private entrance to the side. Airbnb guests enter via the main front door and are completely independent. Unless we are away or on holiday we are always available and happy to help out, answer questions, or sort out any potential problems.
Other things to note
Opposite our house there is a park with swings, and there is plenty of woodland and nature nearby. Not far away there are golf courses, swimming pool, gym, library and Gambado children's play centre should you get tired of visiting London.
The house is also listed as individual rooms. Once a room has been booked the facility to book the whole house as a private accommodation will be marked reserved, but if you are happy to share you can also book multiple rooms on our other listings.
Please report any damage, and remember that people live nearby, so no parties or gathering of non-booked people please. After 10.00pm please be considerate of noise outside (drive and garden) and please advise at her guests of this too. No shouting or revving of engines on front drive after 9.00pm
Check in after 3.00pm and Check out by 10.30 please. Please leave the house as you found it.
Please recycle your rubbish in the bins provided - plastic, glass and metal all go in together into the plastic containers by the bin on the drive.

The cleaning charge added to the price at booking is for clean bedding and towels. Please ask if you need more than we have provided.
Please be kind and leave the house tidy and clean and as found.
If you move furniture please replace as sometimes its too heavy for me to move alone. And also important - please tell the others in your group.
We are a couple with one child still living at home and two children at university. We have been offering homestays and holiday lets for several years but have just joined airbnb.
To see reviews you can look at the following link which will give you some idea about who we are, the property and the location, although of course we no longer offer homestays and your accommodation will be independent and private. We live in a section of the house which has a separate entrance, so you won't see us much unless you would like to, or have a problem or need advice!
