Accommodation charges are in £ sterling

We accept the following payments:

  • secure on-line payment on our web site with most major credit and debit cards, via Worldpay – the safest and most reliable way to pay

Following your booking enquiry, once the availability of accommodation, charge and any other conditions of rental has been discussed and offered, your booking will only be confirmed on your payment of the accommodation charge (deposit or full amount depending on circumstance).  If your booking has not been confirmed by receipt of this payment from you within 14 days of the offer of rental, your enquiry will lapse

Accommodation charges are payable either in 2 parts: a deposit of 20% and the balance no later than 2 calendar months before the start date of the rental period, or 1 single payment: if the rental period commences less than 2 calendar months from the date of the booking confirmation

To complete payments on our web site after the offer of rental has been made (of either deposit, balance or full accommodation charge), go to Book online now, click “Pay now”, and proceed to payment
