Cancellation Policy

We ask for a valid credit/debit card to secure all bookings, but generally do not require a deposit.Payment is made when you are here either via bank transfer or cash.  We do not have a card machine.

If you need to cancel your booking please give us as much notice as possible (cancelling by phone and email) and we will do our best to re-let your room. If we can not re-let the room cancellations within 21days of arrival will be charged.Cancellations made longer than 21 days in advance will not be charged. (except for the conditions below).

Our minimum stay is generally two nights. If part of a booking is cancelled which results in the remainder of the booking being a single night, then the two night fee will be charged regardless of whether we re-let the other night(s).

For bookings which involve a total of more than 8 room nights (ie two rooms for 4 nights, or 3 rooms for 3 nights etc.) we reserve the right to ask for a non refundable deposit of £200,or make a cancellation charge of £200 even when longer than 21 days in advance.
