Prices and availability for the Christmas and New Year period are available on request. The price payable includes accommodation and breakfast for the number of nights stated on your booking.
A deposit is required at the time of booking, to be paid by cheque. If you book more than seven days before arrival, the non-refundable deposit will be 50% of the cost of your booking. If you book seven days or less before arrival you will be required to pay the full amount due for the whole of your stay.
