A 30% deposit of the total hire charge is required to secure your booking. The remaining balance is payable no later than six weeks prior to commencement of the holiday. If you are booking within six weeks of the start of your holiday, payment in full is required.

A good housekeeping deposit of £250.00 is also payable no later than 2 weeks prior to your stay; this is returned to you once our cleaners have checked the property for damages.


By yourselves

If for any reason you have to cancel your holiday, please note that if the cancellation is received more than six weeks before the start of your holiday, you will be liable for the deposit cost but if you cancel within six weeks of the holiday you will be liable for the whole cost. We will endeavour, in any event, to re-let the property and if successful we will make a full refund less an administration charge of £25. It is important that cancellations are notified to us as soon as possible by phone followed by written confirmation.

We recommend our guests to take out their own cancellation insurance with a reputable company, making sure that all your requirements are met. You should ensure that you bring your policy document with you on holiday.

It is your responsibility to make sure that any insurance cover you purchase is suitable for your needs and that of your party.

By us

If we cancel your booking or we are prevented from providing the accommodation you have booked, you may choose to: (i) transfer your booking to a later date free of any administration charges, subject to availability – you will have to pay any difference in price if the cost of the new booking is higher or be reimbursed the difference if the cost of the new booking is lower.  Or  (ii) obtain a refund of the amount already paid by you for the booking, free of any administration charges.
