Do you allow dogs?

  • Yes, well behaved dogs are welcome by prior arrangement.
  • Maximum 2 dogs.
  • We do not make any additional charge for dogs.
  • Dogs are allowed on the strict understanding that they must be kept under reasonable and appropriate control at all times and not allowed to cause any dirt or damage.
  • Although the rear garden of the cottage is enclosed, we cannot guarantee that it is entirely "dog-proof" especially as some dogs are quite accomplished escapees. There may be sheep or other livestock in adjoining croft land and we must ask, therefore, that your dog is fully supervised whilst in the garden and not left on its own.

  • The cottage is about 1 mile from the main centre of the village which is where the shops, pub, etc. are to be found.

How do I pay for my holiday?

  • Our preferred method of payment is by cheque - or possibly by crossed postal order (available from a Post Office).
  • Alternatively, if this is not possible, we can also accept payments via online banking (International Bank Transfer if from outside the UK)

Can I pay by debit or credit card?

  • No, we're sorry but, as just a small business, we do not have facilities to be able to take card payments.
  • This is because of the high charges for operating a merchant account.
  • If we were to accept card payments, we would be forced to increase our prices to offset these charges.
  • We believe you would probably prefer our prices to remain as they are!
