Changeover day is Friday. Weekend breaks are three nights starting on Friday and ending on Monday. Midweek breaks start Monday and end Friday. The Farmhouse/Cottages will be ready for you from 3pm on your arrival date. Please do not arrive any earlier, as time is needed to prepare the property for you.

In the event of cancellation we will do our best to re-let the property. If we are successful we will refund your deposit less a £50 administrative fee. Should we be unable to re-let (due to late cancellation) you will be liable for the full amount. We suggest that you take out cancellation insurance, available at a low cost from most insurance brokers, to cover yourself in this eventuality.
Non Availability of Property
If for any reason beyond the control of the Owner the property is not available on the date booked (owing to fire damage for example) or the property is unsuitable for letting, all rent and charges paid in advance by the Applicants will be refunded in full but the Applicant will have no further claim against the Owner.
