I live in Manchester so I am unlikely to see you during your stay though I have a trusted housekeeper who lives nearby whom you can contact in case of emergencies. There is a key safe on the front door so you can check in any time after 3pm on your day of arrival and plenty of information within the cottage with all you need for an enjoyable stay.
