Deposits
A deposit of one night will be taken with the balance due on departure. For bookings made less than one month in advance, the full amount will be taken at time of booking.

Cancellation Policy
No fee will be charged if your booking is cancelled up to fourteen days before date of arrival. If cancelled after this time, or in case of a no-show, the total price of the booking will be charged.

We will however do our best to re-let the room/s, if so, a full refund will be made.
If booking the whole property for exclusive use, you will be asked to sign a contract and pay a deposit which will have slightly different cancellation terms.

VAT
VAT is included at a rate of 20%. A service charge is at your discretion.

Wifi
WiFi is available throughout The Outbuildings, except for The Pink Hut, and is free of charge. Guests staying at the Pink Hut will just need to walk across to the main building for signal. Please refer to our Terms of Use

Parking
Free private parking is available for all guests. We normally have ample space to accommodate boat trailers – but please do check at time of booking.

Dogs
By special arrangement only. We have our own dogs in the house, which can make it tricky having other peoples! If you want to bring your dog, please contact us before booking. There would also be an additional £10 cleaning charge if your dog stays in your bedroom.

There is an excellent kennel nearby where the dog can also have bed and breakfast! 01248 430809
