These can be incorporated within the shopping service - naturally with supermarket costs applied thus avoiding the usual hotel rates for drinks.

While it is imperative that your house functions like clockwork, the behind-the-scenes cleaning and maintenance will be carried out discreetly and sensitively.  We envisage that most of the day-to-day upkeep will occur without you knowing, but if guests prefer to alter times of the daily cleaning or linen changes simply let your assistant know. We will do all we can to accommodate your preferences and respect your privacy.
