Bookings and Payment

Depending on where and how the booking is made determines the payment requirement (in total, deposit, or no pre-payment required). Bookings may only be made by persons over the age of eighteen.


Our tariffs fluctuate depending on the season and method of booking. We reserve the right to alter prices at any time, but We will not change the prices of existing bookings You have made. Payment for direct bookings can be made by cash, debit or credit card, bank transfer or PayPal (where available). Third-party booking agents may have other methods of payment.


We understand that You may need to change your plans, and We will try and accommodate you. However, We are a small business, and a last-minute booking cancellation can seriously jeopardise our business. Guests should take out adequate travel insurance coverage.

For direct bookings:

Cancellation made with more than 14 days’ notice is 100% refundable.

Cancellations made with less than 14 days notice but more than 7 days’ notice is 50% refundable.

Cancellations made with less than 7 days’ notice are non-refundable.

Just so you know, the policy above may differ from that of third-party agents, and it is Your responsibility to check their Terms and Conditions.


Due to PCI DSS regulations covering online credit card transactions, We do not receive Your card details if You booked online, either at Our website or via a third party. If We need to refund Your bank account or card, We will conduct security checks. We reserve the right not to issue a refund via a particular method.

Cancellation by Us

We have rarely needed to alter a booking. However, if necessary, We shall arrange alternative accommodation of a similar standard. In any such instance, We shall inform You of any change to Your booking before Your travel date. Under circumstances whereby We need to make changes to Your booking, You have the right to cancel Your booking without penalty, and Your booking deposit or payment shall be refunded in full, within seven days of the date of the cancellation.
