Terms of Hire

Bed and Breakfast

All prices are per room per night bed and breakfast and based on 2 people. Multiple occupancy prices are available on request. Occupancy prices per room based on 2 range from £75 – £95 a night. Please check with us for availability and the latest up to the minute prices and to see any special offers. Please note that we operate a minimum 2 night policy. We may occasionally be able to do a 1 night stay for late bookings or if we have a single night available between other bookings. Please email or phone to enquire.
As many guests come for some peace and quiet we only take guests under 16 if both rooms are booked. Babies are welcome. No dogs or pets apart from assistance animals.


A deposit equal to one night’s stay per room booked, is required to guarantee a reservation. Seven days notice of cancellation is required for refund if the room can be re-let. Please note we’re a small business and rely mostly on forward bookings, so cancellations can have a significant impact on us. If cancellation occurs less than 7 days before arrival the deposit will not be refunded. We strongly advise that you have travel insurance to cover you if you need to cancel.

We are happy to accept cash or electronic transfer of funds for payment of the deposit and the balance. Please ring us on 01603754861.

Check In and Departure Times

Check in is usually between 15.30 & 19.00 and we ask that guests vacate their rooms by 10.30 on day of departure. If you will be arriving after 19.00 please let us know so that we can ensure that someone is here to welcome you. We’re sorry but we’re unable to accept check in after 21.00.
