In July an academic gentleman from across the pond spent the week in the cottage.
I really enjoyed corresponding with him before his arrival, answering questions, researching and helping him to plan so that he could make the very most of his short stay in the area.
He is a frequent visitor to England and therefore well used to finding his way around and therefore knew that to fit a lot in, it’s as well to be prepared.
He managed to fit in visits to:
Watership Down and lunch at the pub
The Larmer Tree Festival
The theatre in Bath
as well as closer sights and sites!
On his return he posted a testimonial on airbnb, where he originally found us and I have to confess to experiencing one of my proudest moments.

“Jane is the most friendly, professional, and helpful host I have encountered anywhere.”

From a seasoned world traveller with American standards and expectations of customer care and service, this testimonial means a huge amount.
