Please note the cancellation policy before committing to a reservation. In order for us to confirm a reservation, credit/debit card details are required to secure your booking. We will collect 1 nights deposit at the time of booking, You can cancel your booking up to and including 14 days before arrival and you will receive a full refund. If you cancel after this time we will charge your card the full amount of the 1st nights booking. Cancellation by the Guest We are a small business, so cancellations can have a big impact on us, especially if we have turned away potential guests in favour of someone who has already booked and who then cancels. We do, however, appreciate that unforeseen circumstances can intervene, and we try to be as sympathetic and helpful as possible in such cases. In the event of a cancellation up to 14 days prior to the scheduled date of arrival no charge will be made and you will receive your 1 nights deposit paid back to the card you used to secure the booking. If you cancel your reservation within 14 days of the scheduled date of arrival a cancellation charge equivalent to the room(s) single night rate will be made.
