Opening your home to guests is both a nerve wracking and a delightful experience.
Occasionally things go wrong and people have far less respect for the beautiful properties than you would hope for, and indeed to that end we have had to put in a deposit process, but most guests are fantastic. I just wish I could meet more of them.
We have been particularly lucky at New Forge where people have been so delighted by the house that they have left us gifts!
A lovely Dutch couple left wines a couple of weeks ago, we have had water colours, we’ve had Salvatore, the board riding star gazer made for us, and just recently Polly had these two cards for her birthday from the lovely Poppy and Daisy who stay at Easter. The likeness is uncanny!
Poppy and Daisy borrow Polly and take her on various adventures to the beach.
