Bookings can only be confirmed subject successful receipt of a deposit. The acceptable minimum deposit is equal to at least the cost of the first night of the booking where the booking is for one bedroom.

Where a booking comprises more than one bedroom, the minimum deposit is that of the first nights stay in each bedroom.

Room Charges

Room charges are for the use of the bedroom and the amenities contained therein for the duration of your booking. It also includes breakfast unless your booking specifically excludes breakfast.

Room charges do not include the purchase of furnishings or fabrics, bathrobes or any other items and so they must not be removed from the house.

If a guest wishes separately, to purchase items such as toiletries, bath robes or bedding they may do so and we can obtain new, packaged items for this purpose.

Our beds are renowned for their comfort and, in response to requests from previous guests, guests may try the bed before they buy a new one from us.

Where a bed is purchased by a guest, we shall deduct an amount from the cost of that bed equal to one night's accommodation for that guest.

We can deliver to your home too, subject to extra charge.

Check-in time

Bookings are accepted on the basis that guests may check-in anytime between 3pm and 9pm UK local time (GMT/BST as appropriate), on check-in day.

If guests need to arrive earlier for example, to drop off luggage, they may do so by prior arrangement with the business. However, there is no guarantee that the guest's bedroom will have been prepared for them prior to check-in time.

Guests who wish to arrive later than 9pm, may do so by prior arrangement up until such time as when arrival may disturb other guests.

Please let us know if you will be later than your planned arrival time.

Room Occupancy

This accommodation is subject to a limit on the maximum number of guests staying at any one time.

Smoking is not permitted if any part of the person is within the house. A fine imposed on the proprietor will be passed onto the individual(s) who break this rule.
