Care of the Property

We do understand that accidents can happen, please report breakages asap to give us time to replace them before the next guests arrive. Please refer to our terms and conditions with any questions.

Please note that CCTV is operational outside the property for security. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Please respect neighbouring properties and keep noise levels to a minimum between 10pm and 8am, especially outside using the hot tub.

The properties are strictly non-smoking. A cigarette bin can be found outside.

Lost Property
If guests leave any personal belongings behind they must be claimed within two weeks. We are happy to return any goods for a charge from £10, depending on the item. Please note items will not be kept any longer than two weeks due to the high volume of lost property accumulated.
