a first class and memorable experience
We would like to invite our new and returning guests to read our information pages. If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will be more than happy to answer them for you.
We respect the fact that this is your holiday, and we would like to ensure that you get everything out of it that you desire.
Terms & Conditions
Bookings can be made on-line via our prices and availability pages, or by telephone and confirmed in writing within four working days. Payment of a deposit of 25% of the rent is required at the time of booking.
Payments can be made securely on-line using a credit or debit card, or you can post a cheque. Payment of the balance is due six weeks before your arrival date. Bookings made within six weeks of the arrival date require full payment immediately.
Please note that payments by credit card will attract a surcharge of 2% to defray at least part of the fees that we have to pay to the card companies. No surcharge applies to other methods of payment, including paying by debit card.
If you have to cancel due to the ill health of someone in your party or the death of a close relative, you will lose your deposit and will be obliged to pay the balance unless the property is re-let. However, if you participate in our Rent Waiver Scheme, we will refund your deposit and refund or waive payment of the balance due if you cannot fulfil the contract due to any of the said circumstances. The charge for this is 4% of the rent. If you choose not to participate, please ensure that you have appropriate holiday insurance.
Hemmel House, Miller’s Hill, Outer Moss, Comby Hills, Craggy, Kilnfield, Heron Hill and Near Brow are let Saturday – Saturday during high season (April – November) and Friday – Friday during low season (November – April). Short breaks are available during low season (Excluding School Holiday Periods).
Please refer to our prices and availability pages for details of each property.
Subject to availability, short breaks of three nights Fri-Mon or four nights Mon-Fri may be available in low season (usually mid-November to Easter), with change-over days on Fridays and Mondays. Midweek breaks are priced at less than weekend breaks and represent excellent value. Short breaks may be available in high season on a last minute basis.
Short Breaks are available in all of our luxury holiday cottages.
Christmas week starts on 21st December and New Year 28th December.
Arrival time is between 3.00pm – 6.30pm where the office will be open, and you will be directed to your cottage. After 6.30pm, we ask guests to consult their site plan received in their arrival email and find their own way to their cottage.
All lets are from 3.00 pm on the day of arrival until 10.00 am on the day of departure.
High chairs and cots are available on request with no extra charge. We do not, however, provide linen for cots.
Bed-wetting is a sensitive area, but we do provide waterproof mattress protectors in each cottage. We ask that you use these if you are in any doubt, as we will make a charge for spoiled mattresses.
We do not accept pets in any of our cottages, except for Cheviot Cottage. We realise that assistance dogs are a separate issue, and so please double check before booking if a member of your party suffers from allergies to dogs.
Some of our properties are more suitable for disabled guests than others, so please seek our advice by email or telephone before booking. We can provide aids for less able people on request.
All of our properties have been non-smoking since 1 January 2008.
On the day of checkout, we request that cottages are left in a neat and tidy state with the bins emptied, and all dishes washed and put away. We reserve the right to charge an additional fee for cottages left in an unsatisfactory manner.
The village of Powburn is one mile away and provides a post office and petrol station / shop. It is also on the main bus route.
