Covid19 Cancellations – If you have to cancel your booking because the UK government imposes travel/accommodation restrictions due to this pandemic, you may choose to :
– Transfer your booking to a later date free of any administration charges and subject to availability. You will have to pay any difference in price if the cost of the new booking is higher.
– Request a credit for the amount previously paid by you for the accommodation. The voucher terms and conditions at the time, will be available to you when you choose this option.
– Under special circumstances, we would offer a refund of the amount already paid by you for the booking, less any administrative costs which we incur in processing your refund.
If you have booked your stay via a third party website – for example Trip Advisor/Holliday Letting/ VRBO/ Expedia please note we only account for the value of the accommodation payment so you may have to cancel your booking with them directly.

If the property is re-let for some of the days cancelled, the refund will be of the same value of the days re-let only. All cancellations incur an administration fee of £50.
