Before booking please read our booking terms & conditions below. If you are unclear about any points please give a ring to discuss. When we take any payments we assume that you have read, understood and agree to abide by the conditions.

How to book online and confirm the booking with a card payment

1.      Click on ‘Book Online’ at the top right of the screen

2.      Select your date of arrival and click on it. Please note that if the date square is green then it is available, if it’s yellow then you cannot arrive on that date (we are Saturday to Saturday between Easter and end of October), and if its burgundy then it’s unavailable.

3.      A list of available properties will appear so just choose the property you want by clicking the drop down box at the right of the screen (to the right of the price) and changing the ‘0’ to a ‘1’. Ignore the fact that it says ‘rooms required’ and not ‘properties required’! Now just click on the ‘Book Room(s)’ button and follow the instructions. Please note that your card details are safe and secure and no money will be taken from your account until we have contacted you by phone or email. We will do this at the first possible opportunity.

4.      Bookings of 7 nights or more must be confirmed with a non-refundable deposit of £100 per property per week. We will then post out a final invoice to you for the balance due TWO MONTHS prior to your holiday commencing. This must be paid by return.
