Smoking: The cottages are strictly non-smoking and non-vaping. Guests should not smoke or vape in or near the buildings. In the garden for each cottage there is a table and benches with ashtray. Guests are welcome to smoke or vape there.
Covid Information: In these uncertain times, if you are unable to travel to take your holiday because of a national lockdown, or because you are put into a Tier where you are unable to travel, that we will guarantee that you will get a full refund. This applies only to the address given on the booking at the time of booking being put in a high tier, and when the travel restriction coincides with the period of your holiday.
The refund guarantee covers lockdowns and Tier restrictions, but does NOT cover you (or members of your party) for being unable to travel because you (or a member of your party) fall ill with Covid, or are required to quarantine or self-isolate. These events can be covered by you taking out travel insurance. There are a number of policies that include cover for illness with Covid and self-isolation (example links below) or you can look for suitable cover on comparison sites such as www.gocompare.com.
We are not selling, promoting, endorsing or recommending any particular product, and do not benefit financially from, nor have any formal relationship with, any of these providers.
Normal Cancellation Policy: By making your booking, our agreement is a legally binding contract and the deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable. We would recommend that you take out cancellation insurance to cover this cost. Cancellations within two weeks prior to arrival or in the event of a no show will invoke the full price of the stay. This will also be the case for guests who just do not arrive. Cancellations prior to this will result in the loss of deposit. We also reserve the right to refuse a booking made online, in which case the person making the booking will be notified and the deposit refunded.
Dogs: On arrival please keep your dog on a lead whilst you unpack and get your bearings. There may be other dogs and guests on site so you must keep your dogs on a lead around the driveway and cottages.
Dogs are not allowed in the bedrooms. If your dog goes on the sofas, please use the throws provided. The cottages have a door or stair gate to control where they go. We will levy an extra cleaning charge if they have been on the beds or on uncovered sofas and any damage will have to be paid for.
If you wish to leave your dog in the cottage please ask for a crate if you think it will provide security and control. If your dog tends to bark when left alone then please take your dog with you.
Non-availability of accommodation: We would only cancel your booking if your accommodation was unavailable for reasons beyond our control. We would however attempt to offer you alternative accommodation. If this was not possible, or unacceptable to you, then we would refund all monies paid by you for the holiday. Our liability would not extend beyond this refund.
Arrival: Your cottage will be available to you from 17:00 hrs on the day of arrival, unless otherwise arranged.
Late arrival procedure: Please ensure you contact us no later than 19:00 hrs to let us know if you will be arriving late.
Departure: Please be ready to leave your cottage by 09.30 hrs on the day of departure, unless otherwise arranged.
Damages: Guests are responsible and liable for any breakages or damages to the accommodation or it’s contents. Please could you report any incidents as they occur. We do not normally charge for minor breakages but we may send you an invoice for repair or making good if the damage or breakage is significant.
Liability: We do not accept any liability for any damage, loss or injury to any member of your party or any vehicles or possessions, unless proven to be caused by a negligent act by ourselves, employees or contractors whilst acting in the course of employment.
