Changes to booking

We will always endeavor to accommodate changes to your booking once made and confirmed, however such changes will incur an administration fee of £30. Changes within 6 weeks of your stay to alternative dates may incur additional cancellation charges and are subject to alternative date availabilities.

Cancellation of booking by you

On confirmation of your booking a contract of Hire between The Hirer and us as ‘Owners’ will exist.  In the event of cancellation by you 8 weeks or more before your stay will result in the loss of the £100 security deposit. Cancellation under 8 weeks from booked stay will forfeit the whole hire fee paid (or due) unless the Owners are able to re-let, in which case only the £100 deposit will be forfeit.


Cancellation of booking by us

Should a property suddenly become unavailable for the dates hired by you due to unforeseen circumstances, all efforts will be made to offer suitable alternatives. If this is not possible, then all monies paid by you (the Hirer) will be refunded to you in full with no deductions but the Owners will incur no further liability of any kind. Under no circumstances will the Owners be liable to refund any amount exceeding the amount paid by the Hirer.


The Owners accept no liability whatsoever for any Loss, Damage, Injury or Accident to the Hirer or any member of the Hirer’s party or property whilst in occupation of the property or its grounds howsoever caused.

Security Deposit

Please note that damages and losses are not limited to the security deposit and any costs in excess of this amount will be invoiced and payable in full without delay. The security deposit will also be used to cover any additional costs of cleaning if the property is left dirty or if vacated later than 10.00 am on the day of departure.

Cancellation and personal insurance
It is very strongly recommended that you have adequate personal and holiday cancellation insurance to cover you and all members of your party. This should be suitable for UK self-catering holidays arranged independently of a travel agent and should include cancellation protection cover to safeguard you against loss of the cost of your holiday in the event of unexpected cancellation. Under no circumstances will the Owners be responsible for loss of life, personal injury, medical expenses, accidents, damage to the Hirers property, personal effects or motor vehicle(s) and you should ensure that any insurance covers such eventualities.

One well behaved pet is welcome in Granary Barn and up to two in Cedar Barn at the additional cost per dog of £20 per stay. We ask that dogs are not allowed upstairs and never left unattended. Please note that owners are responsible for the cost of any damages or excessive cleaning charges. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times bearing in mind that we have livestock in the adjoining paddocks and to comply with the countryside code.

For the comfort of all guests, smoking is not permitted anywhere inside the premises.
