We aim to keep the booking process and charging structure as flexible and straightforward as possible. Please read the following guidelines and, if you would like to take a holiday here, contact us via the booking enquiry form below.
We don’t have a fixed changeover day. If it works with our schedule you can arrive on the day that suits you. Similarly depending on who’s behind or ahead of you, we can be flexible on check in/out times too!
We won’t penalise families and charge higher rates during the school holidays. The cottage, its cosiness, quality furnishings and fabulous views are the same no matter what time of year you visit (although the weather won’t be – guaranteed!)
We love dogs. Our fox red labrador adores her adventures in the forest and dozing in front of the open fire. But she has to abide by two canine house rules. She's not allowed on the furniture nor upstairs. We welcome our guests' dogs but the same rules must apply.
But smoking is not.....
We're not fans of tobacco and insist there is no smoking anywhere in the cottage. Outdoor smokers must clear up after themselves. Please respect the National Park and wildlife by resisting the temptation to flick those butts in to our lovely forest to decompose over the next ten years.
And winter can cause us problems.....
We accept winter bookings but must forewarn you.....we can get lots of snow. It's beautiful here when that happens but too much and the access track becomes impassable. Our private water supply can freeze if sub-zero temperatures persist. Neither of these happen often or for a sustained period. But if they do, we may have to cancel your booking at short notice. Of course we will return all monies paid.
Just one more thing….The secluded location comes at a small price – whilst we do have 4G Wifi we cannot receive a terrestrial TV signal. We do however have a library of DVD movies and music CDs. Oh and fairly reliable Vodafone and EE 4G connections for those with the right tech and desire to stay in touch with the outside world.
