There are two ways to find your holiday cottage:

  • On the Cottage page click the Check Availability button.
  • Click on an arrival date (shown in bold) to begin booking.
  • Next, click your departure date, also shown in bold. This will make your selection dark blue.
  • Available dates are shown in teal. If the dates are coral coloured, we’re afraid it is booked already,
  • Breaks are available for standard 3, 4, 7 & 14 nights, on the specified start days for each Cottage and at the advertised tariff.
    Short breaks are only at certain times of year.
  • Special Offers are shown next to the price.

  • You now enter the booking process and you will need a Payment Card ready.



To complete your booking you will need the following information:

  • Your debit/credit card details
  • Number of people in your party

A Deposit Amount of £200 per week and per short break is required at time of booking.
Then the balance amount plus Security Deposit of £200 and None Refundable Booking Fee £35 is due 8 weeks prior to the Start Date of your holiday.

If your booking is made less than 8 weeks before the Start Date, full payment is required at the time of booking.

The balance amount plus Security Deposit of £200 should be paid online using your booking reference, see Your Booking. The Security Deposit amount of £200 will be credited to your card account that you used to pay your balance 7 days after your departure date, unless any damage or extra Property Manager duties were required, in which case the cost of damage or extra Property Manager duties will be deducted from your Security Deposit amount of £200, the remaining amount will be credited to your card account that you used to pay your balance.

Please ensure you have read and understood our Terms and Conditions.
