Additional Rate and Availability Information
We require a 50% deposit to secure the booking, with the balance to be paid 60 days prior to arrival together with a returnable security deposit of £250 a week to cover damages or any extra cleaning required.
Arrival time is from 4pm and departure is by 10am; early check-in and late check-out may be available for an extra charge.
Please enquire if you would like to book longer than 3 nights and shorter than a week!
Outside of the peak summer season, we can be flexible about the changeover day.
We expect the house to be left in the same clean and tidy condition as on arrival for the deposit to be refunded in full. Otherwise the cost of extra cleaning will be deducted from the security deposit. (But we anticipate returning the full deposit, barring any little accidents!)
