The holiday rental period is for 7 consecutive nights. Additional nights will be charged on a pro-rata basis of the weekly rate.The short break rental period is for a minimum of 3 consecutive nights. Additional nights will be charged on a pro-rata basis of the weekly rate. We do not offer single night breaks. The period of hire shall be as specified on the booking form and run from 3pm on the day of arrival to 10 am on the day of departure unless otherwise agreed. The hirer binds and obliges himself to vacate the property at the termination of the period and the hirer will be responsible for any loss to the lessor resulting from failure to move by the specified time.


The initial deposit is required at the time of booking, and secures your selected dates. The full remainder of the hire charge is due six weeks before the start of hire. Electricity, bed linen and towels are included within the rental charge.


A refundable breakages deposit is required to cover for breakages, non accidental damage etc. This amount will be returned on departure if the property is retained in the same condition as on arrival.


Providing that more than six weeks notice is given, the deposit less a cancellation fee of £30 will normally be refunded. However, should the accommodation not be re-let, the whole of the deposit will be held. Where less than six weeks notice of cancellation is given, every effort will be made to re-let but should this not be possible, the hirer will be liable to pay the balance due. Holiday Cancellation Insurance is strongly advised to avoid this occurring.

Failure to pay

The lessor may treat the booking as cancelled by the hirer in the event of the full hire charge as invoiced not being paid by the hirer six weeks before the date of the start of hire.


The hirer shall at all times maintain the property and leave the property in a clean and tidy condition at the end of the let. Should we have to make any unreasonable extra effort preparing for the next guests, a cleaning charge will be incurred.
