Frequently Asked Questions

When can we start enquiring and booking for Christmas/New Years school holidays?

We will start opening up bookings for this period in July. Please keep in mind that the last season's regulars will get first preference.

Why do we not have to pay a deposit?

Payment needs to be received 4 weeks before arrival. If you have booking online or through us personally on phone or email we have secured you a home and there is no need to pay a deposit.

Are there any homes that will allow pets?

We have one home which is dog friendly, it's enquiry only and we will get the owners permission first.

If we clean do we need to pay the cleaning fee?

Yes the cleaning fee is compulsory, we do require homes to be how they were left, but to ensure that the next guest has a hygienic, comfortable stay we will clean the property to make sure it complies with our standards

Are we able to have extra guests stay in a caravan or tent at the property?

Unfortunately not under any circumstances will we allow a caravan or tent at a property.
