Booking Information

Booking start dates and party size reductions

  • Weekly Bookings: Normally Saturday to Saturday but some properties may changeover on Fridays or Sundays; this is down on each individual property page on our website. Out of season, it's often possible to arrange for a booking to start on any day to suit your requirements. Just ask us and we'll see what we can do!
  • Short Break Bookings: Available at most of our properties - usually at certain times of the year but it's always worth a phone call to us as we may be able to accommodate you.
  • Christmas & New Year Weeks: These may differ from normal changeover days, depending on which day of the week Christmas Day and New Year's Day fall. Whatever your preferred start date, do ask - we'll try to accommodate!
  • Party Size Reductions: These are offered at some of our properties out of season for small parties; these reductions are shown in the property descriptions.


Breakages Deposit

For some properties, a breakages/cleaning deposit is requested.

Details are available from us; you will be advised when you book and the details will be noted no our booking confirmation to you. These deposits are listed on our website at the bottom of the property description for properties where they apply.



A deposit of one thirs of the weekly or short break price plus booking fee is required for each week (or part week) booked.

The payment balance is due twelve weeks in advance; payment in full is required for bookings made less than twelve weeks prior to the start of your holiday.


Booking Confirmations

After we've processed your booking and deposit, we'll send you confirmation of your booking (usually by email). Then, when payment has been received in full, you'll be sent full details of the property including the address and directions, the owner's name and contact telephone number, electricity and heating details etc. Arrival time at your home-from-home is not normally before 3 or 4pm and then, at the end of what we hope has been a wonderful holiday, please vacate the property by 10am on the day of departure.
