We look forward to welcoming you. When you make your booking, you enter into an agreement with us.

Please find the information about your stay and our terms and conditions below. See you soon! Jon and Katia

Arrival and Departure

Check in is available from 4.00pm to 7.30pm on the day of arrival. We ask that you please vacate your room by 10.30am on the morning of departure.

Early/late check in and late check out can be arranged at an additional fee and by prior arrangement only (subject to availability). Give us a call on 01369 704 825 to arrange. Please note we do not offer a bag drop off service.

Booking and cancellations

It's always best to book us directly via our website, email or phone. Our direct rates are always cheaper than those on (due to their massive commission fee) and we offer our direct guests complimentary upgrades when possible and other perks.

Please note the cancellation policy before committing to a reservation.

We are a small business, so cancellations can have a big impact on us, especially if we have turned away potential guests in favour of someone who has already booked and who then cancels. For this reason we advise that you take out a suitable insurance product in case you are unable to travel.

If a reservation is cancelled less than 14 days before date of arrival or in case of a no show, the total price of the reservation will be charged. (upd: 14 Aug 2021)

Bookings made via third parties such as may be subject to different terms and conditions in force at the time of booking - always read all the info carefully before making the booking.

Please cancel your platter orders at least 24 hours in advance, otherwise full charges will apply.

Please note that whilst our bedrooms and the guest lounge are dog-friendly, dogs are not allowed in the restaurant. We know that this does not suit all dog owners so please ensure you are happy with this policy before booking as we are unable to make exceptions apart from for registered guide-dogs. We have a diverse range of guests staying in the hotel, some with pet-hair allergies and some simply scared of dogs. Please be mindful of this during your stay. We ask you not to leave your dog alone in the bedroom when you go out.

Please note you will also be responsible for any additional cost for deep-cleaning, repair and replacement of damaged facilities caused by your pet. If we find any dog mess in the room , the charge will be the cost of one night's accommodation plus £75.00 for deep-cleaning and sanitising.
