Cancellation and Insurance

If you need to cancel your stay with us please contact us as soon as possible.

  • For self-catering stays, if you cancel your reservation more than six weeks before the start of your stay you will forfeit your deposit, unless we are able to re-sell the dates of your stay.
  • For self-catering and guesthouse stays, if you cancel your reservation within six weeks of your arrival date then the full balance remains payable. If we are able to re-sell the dates of your stay we will however refund all monies paid.
  • In the event of a National Lockdown that coincides with your stay, where you are unable to travel, and where we are prevented from opening, you will receive a full refund.
  • In the event of a Regional Lockdown where the address given on the reservation is placed under this lockdown, and the period of restriction covers the period of your reservation, you will receive a full refund. Please note that this applies only to the address given on the booking by the lead booker.
  • Any other reasons for an inability to travel, or decision not to travel, remain at your own risk and do not give rise to a right to cancel your booking or receive a refund.
  • We therefore strongly advise that you take out comprehensive UK travel insurance to cover you against cancellation. It is the responsibility of the lead booker to acquire appropriate insurance for the whole group, including cancellation and curtailment.


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 of a similar standard.
