  3. We can hold provisional bookings for 5 days.
  4. We confirm bookings by email when we have received a non-refundable deposit of 50% of the full accommodation charge.
  5. You’ll need to pay the balance of the accommodation charge at least 6 weeks before the start of your holiday. If you do not pay the balance when it is due we reserve the right to cancel the booking.
  6. If you are unfortunate to find you need to cancel your holiday after paying the deposit, as a courtesy we will try our best to re-let the break and therefore return your deposit.
  7. If you book less than 6 weeks before the start of your holiday, we ask for the full accommodation charge at the time of booking.
    This is treated as a non-returnable payment.

  12. Arrival time is after 4pm on the day of your arrival and departure time is 11am. If you can, let us know roughly when you’ll arrive so that we can ensure the house is warm and well-lit.
  13. If you take advantage of our Eco-deal please let us know when you book that you will not be bringing a car. Your 5% discount will applied when you book.
