These are charged at 75% of the weekly price for a 3-night break and 85% for 4 nights. 5 nights or greater are charged at the full week price.
  3. The cottage will normally be available from 4pm on the day you arrive and we would ask you to depart by 10:00am on the day you leave to allow time for cleaning between guests. All members of your party must vacate the property by this time.  It may sometimes be possible to adjust these, but this is subject to other bookings, so please contact us if you have special requirements.
