In the event of the cottage(s) being left in an unsatisfactory state, then a charge will be made on top of the tariff to cover costs including cleaning, laundry and other costs incurred.


We ask that any breakages or faulty equipment be reported so that we may replace them. In the case of breakages, a replacement charge may be made.
