A deposit of 30% of the rental fee is required on booking. The balance of the rental fee is payable 4 weeks prior to arrival (we will invoice you at this time.) Non-payment of the balance four weeks in advance shall be deemed to be cancellation of the booking. For bookings made less than four weeks in advance the total amount is payable on booking. Payment can be made using BACS or a debit or credit card.


In the event of your needing to cancel your holiday we will try to re-let. If this is possible your money will be refunded, less £30 handling charge. If we are unable to re-let your holiday then none of the monies paid to us can be refunded. We advise you to take out holiday cancellation insurance
