Frequently Asked Questions
Booking Arrival & Departure
Is there any flexibility on the arrival day during August?
August is the only month where we specify a stay of 7 nights, and changeover day is Friday, so I’m afraid we cannot offer flexibility on this. For the rest of the year, there are no restrictions (minimum stay 3 nights).
Can I have an earlier check in or a later departure?
Generally no, but it is always worth contacting us to check if it could be arranged.
What happens if I cancel a booking?
Full details on cancelations are in your terms and conditions. Please contact us if you meed more detail.
Is there a surcharge for paying by credit card?
Although the credit card company charge us, we have decided not to pass this charge on. So consequently, our preferred payment method is by BANK TRANSFER or debit card. You can always pay by cheque.
Is the price of my booking fixed?
Do you offer holiday insurance?
Would I receive a discount if I book well in advance or if I wait until the last minute?
No, the prices shown on the website are fixed.
