How much is the deposit?
It’s an initial £100 deposit to secure the dates of your choice. The full cost of the holiday is then payable 6 weeks before your stay and the initial £100 turns into a refundable security deposit that is returned after your stay if everything ok with the cottage within 2 weeks of departure..
What time can I check in ?
Firstly, we want to give our cleaner as much time as possible to do the extra sanitation required at our cottages. So, we’ve had to change our check in time to 4pm. However, if the property is ready earlier, we will text you to let you know so you can get settled more quickly.
You are more than welcome to arrive before this and park up and go for a walk on the beach or find your bearings. We also ask that if possible, you check out at 9 am to give our cleaner as much time as possible to put in the extra sanitisation required during this difficult time. We hope you understand.
