There is no 'service charge', booking fees or other such nonsense. The rates are for up to 6 persons.

The deposit required to secure a holiday at Rock Cottage is only 25% of the total rent.  Preferred method of payment please is internet banking/BACS. PayPal is accepted (even if you do not have a PayPal account), or a cheque drawn on a UK bank account. Payment by cheque may be made but because of postage and clearance times, we cannot guarantee the booking.  A final payment will be due no later than 60 days before the holiday commences together with the Good Housekeeping/Damage Deposit of £200.

When a booking is cancelled by a guest we will try to re-let the holiday. However, as we do not provide cancellation insurance, we suggest this might be an option for guests to consider.

Peggy' our sturdy rowing dinghy is provided (Easter to end of October - weather and tide permitting), at no extra cost. BT Broadband WiFi is included in the rent too. For a baby, you will find a travel cot, highchair, baby bath and changing mat.

Subject to the owner’s prior agreement, a maximum of two obedient dogs may be permitted providing no more than 4 persons are staying in the cottage at any one time. The charge is £35 per dog per week.  For reasons of hygiene and for consideration of other guests, they must live in the kitchen and hallway only and be kept out of the carpeted lounge, all bedrooms and not allowed on any furniture. A pet gate is supplied. Dogs should not be left unattended in the property unless they have a suitable container. Your dog can enjoy the woodland as well as the dog friendly beaches.
