Frequently Asked Questions
What is included in the price?
Everything except electricity.
“Pay as you go” meters have been installed in each cottage and these are pre-loaded with a £10 credit for every week that guests propose to stay. The meters accept £1 & £2 coins.
Towels,sheets,duvets and wood for the fires etc are included.
Should we take out insurance?
We recommend that you do take out some form of insurance. This is because once the holiday is booked it will be your responsibility to pay in full even if you are unable to come.
It is our sincere hope and expectation that it will be possible to negotiate mutually acceptable arrangements in the event of unavoidable cancellations. However, if communications break down, appropriate action (including legal options) will be pursued to recover rental payments which are deemed to be due.
