All cancellations are free up to one week before the date of arrival. Within one week of arrival and up to 48 hours before arrival, the cost of the first night will be charged. This will be refunded if the room is rebooked.
Cancellations of bookings made through an online booking agent (e.g. Booking.com) must be notified via the booking agent. We strongly advise that you take out cancellation insurance.

Rooms must be vacated by 11am on the day of departure.
Children are welcome to stay when booking a family room (see room details when booking). Children should not be left unattended in the accommodation.
Sorry, we are unable to accommodate pets.
Smoking and vaping are prohibited on the premises. Should you choose to smoke in your room we reserve the right to charge you £100 to cover the cost of the cleaning and you also may be liable for additional charges should the room need to be taken out of service.
There is limited parking on-site and this is on a first come, first served basis. All vehicles are left at the owner’s risk.
