In light of the extreme circumstances currently faced by the entire nation, we are taking the following steps, effective immediately:

At the time of writing the government have not enforced any travel restrictions across the UK and Ireland; however they are advising people against travelling anywhere unnecessarily at this time.


For customers booked directly with us into one of our cottages during April and May we are offering to amend their holiday dates with no amendment fee. Seasonal price differences will be charged/refunded. We would like to advise guests to contact their travel insurer should they wish to cancel.


We will be taking no new bookings for holidays taking place up to 4th June which when the current 12 week period should finish.


We are reviewing the ever-changing situation daily and will continue to keep you informed should this date change.

These decisions have not been taken lightly and are done so in order to protect the best interests and wellbeing of our customers, ourselves and the wider public.

We will continue to keep you informed in this ever-changing situation.
