FURNITURE, FURNISHINGS AND DAMAGE
Please note that Danby Lodge contains antique/designer furniture and other high-quality fittings and furnishings which guests are asked to treat with respect. Guests are asked not to move any furniture inside the property as you may damage it. If you move outside furniture such as seats, tables or Sun Loungers, we ask that you return it to where it was when you arrived at the property. We reserve the right to charge guests if items are not returned back to where they were when you arrived.
STAFF/OWNER PRESENCE AND MAINTENANCE
You may meet Norman or Richard during your stay at Danby Lodge. Norman is the groundskeeper and he often visits in the mornings to water the greenhouse and generally check that all is well with the gardens. Richard maintains the pool and the Koi pond. He will visit to feed the fish and maintain the quality of the water in the ponds and the pool. They are very friendly and will do their best not to disturb you. They will be happy to help you if you require any assistance and can answer any questions about the house and things to do in the area.
The owner keeps a private self contained flat in the coach house. This is separate from the main house and does not overlook the pool or main garden areas. He sometimes stays there when guests are in residence. If he is there during your stay, you may occasionally see him coming or going via the grounds of the house.
