We only accept bookings when we’ve checked them. We contact you to confirm we've received your booking and to confirm we've accepted it.

Sometimes we may need to reject bookings. When this happens, we let you know as soon as possible and refund any sums you have paid.

If the booking is made by a 3rd party, then the full names of the guests staying must be provided to us.



Prices and payment

The price quoted is based on bed and breakfast per room per night. The maximum occupancy is 2 people per room.


Bookings require a deposit equal to the first night stay, paid by debit or credit card. The balance is due on arrival and can be paid by credit/debit card or cash (GBP). We do not accept personal cheques, travellers cheques, American Express or Diners Card.


If we're unable to collect any payment you owe us we charge interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the Bank of England base rate from time to time. This interest accrues on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You pay us the interest together with any overdue amount.




This is a non-smoking B&B. We do not accept smoking or vaping in any rooms or in the grounds of the B&B.  Any guests found to be in breach of this policy will be asked to leave immediately. If we discover that guests have smoked in the rooms we will debit your card with the cost of an extra nights stay to cover additional cleaning and airing of the room.

We are not responsible for losses you suffer caused by us breaking this contract if the loss is :
·         Unexpected. It was not obvious that it would happen and nothing you said to us before we accepted you booked meant we should have expected it (so, in the law, the loss was unforeseeable).
