I keep "visitors lists" which is made up of items that I have come across in hotels as well as from friends homes and importantly things that I wish were available when I went away. I put the items in a pretty basket and leave them on the bed for guests. One item that guests seem to appreciate is a small scented garbage bag with tie handles ... who wants a host emptying a bin of your own rubbish when you can simply tie it up and put it in the household bin yourself.

I always ensure every room has a box of tissues and a bin. The spare bedroom also has two reading lamps and convenient sockets for appliance charging near the bed and a socket for hair appliances beside an empty chest of drawers which I picked up from an opportunity shop and stripped back for a shabby chic look.

We always leave a photo frame in our three spare rooms, now the kids have half gone with the wifi code, they say home is where the wifi is! It’s always nice to have it for guests to share, and it means we don’t have to remember after a few bottles of wine. We also make sure each room has towels toothbrush’s and a small toothpaste for visitors and a carafe of water and some local magazines of the New England area in case they want to go exploring
