Coronavirus / Covid19  –  We are happy to offer 100% refunds of both Deposits and Balance payments to our existing guests and any who book during 2020.  Because of these strange times we are also happy for guests to make the Balance payment one week before their arrival.  We want our guests to be confident that they will not be out of pocket when booking out holiday cottage.

I would like to register my thanks to my new and regular guests for being so flexible and supportive during these very difficult times.
