Interaction with guests
Our Rental Managers, who live locally will be able to discuss with you any concerns that you may have. They will be on hand to greet you and give you the keys. They will go through the house with you showing you where everything is and how everything works. They are employed by me but will also assist you if you require any cleaning or babysitting services or can put you in contact with someone that may help you. A booklet will be sent to you on receipt of your final payment. This book contains a mixture of hints, tips, useful services, contact numbers and general information specific to the house and surrounding area.

Glenacres is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, served by more than 20 miles of footpaths and bridle ways, all rich in wildlife. Nestled under 'Golden Cap', it is worth a walk to its summit as it gives an unrivalled view across Lyme Bay and towards the Isle of Portland. Bridport, 4 miles to the east, is known for it's art and antiques quarter. West Bay, within Bridport's town boundary, is a busy harbour 'village' with beach and characteristic kiosks, pubs and restaurants. 8 miles to the west is the pretty historic resort of Lyme Regis.
