This confirmation will include details of the balance outstanding and details of when it is due, the final balance is due no later than 30 days prior to the start date of your holiday. We reserve the right to cancel any booking when payment is not received by due date and no refund will be made in this situation. For bookings made less than 30 days before your holiday start date, the full balance is payable on booking. All bookings are provisional until confirmed in writing. If you choose to cancel your booking, cancellation terms can be found in the section “Cancellation”, below.

In the event of a cancellation, please could you contact us immediately, by telephone or email.

If cancelled less than 30 days before arrival, the hirer will be liable for the full cost, before the 30 days the initial deposit will be non-refundable, unless there is an arrangement made by us and the hirer to transfer this to another booking, this is subject to availability and at the discretion of the business owner.

We obviously hope this does not happen, but we recommend that you take out you own uk travel insurance.

Changes to Bookings

If, after we have issued a confirmation, you wish to change the dates of your holiday, then you will be liable to pay a re-arrangement fee of £10 per week booked, any such re-arrangement being subject to availability. Please note this is only applicable to a change of dates at the same property, otherwise standard cancellation terms will apply.


In the Unlikely event of the accommodation becoming unavailable due to circumstances beyond our control, i.e., acts of nature, government enforced lockdowns, civil war or acts of terrorism, failure of utility service, for the period that covers your booking, we would like to make every effort to provide alternative accommodation or give a full refund or rearrange your stay for a later date.


The number of people occupying the cottage must not exceed the number booked. The owner reserves the right to refuse entry to the entire party if this condition is not observed. Your accommodation will be available from 4pm, on the day of arrival and should be vacated

10pm and 8am.
