Cancellation and Insurance

Once you have booked The Station Master’s House, our agreement with you is a legal contract.

42 days in advance of arrival = loss of deposit.

28 - 42 days in advance of arrival = 50% cancellation.

28 days or less in advance of arrival = 100% cancellation.

I recommend that you take out cancellation insurance for your stay.

Non-availability of cottage as booked

We would only cancel your holiday if the cottage was unavailable for reasons beyond our reasonable control. We would attempt to offer you alternative accommodation, however if this was either not possible or not acceptable to you then we would refund to you all monies paid for the holiday. Our liability to you would not extend beyond this refund.


Your cottage will be ready for you from 3.30pm unless otherwise agreed in advance. Please do not arrive earlier, as the cottage will be being prepared for your arrival.


You should vacate your cottage by 9.45am on the morning of your departure, unless we have agreed a later time with you. To assist our house keepers, we ask that you leave the property in a clean and tidy condition.


Should you find any faults or have any problems or complaints during your stay, please advise me of these immediately by email or telephone so that any appropriate action can be taken.


We do not accept liability for damage, loss or injury unless caused by proven negligent act or omission of ourselves, our contractors, or agents of the same, whilst acting in the course of their employment. This includes loss or damage to vehicles and their contents, and to the personal possessions you bring with you.

Damage and Breakages

You are responsible for any breakages or damage you cause to the cottage and its contents. Please report these before you leave. Note that we do not normally charge for minor breakages (eg glassware, crockery) provided that these have been reported.


We make every effort to ensure that the information and cottage descriptions contained on our own and other web sites are accurate. We do however reserve the right to make small changes and we accept no liability for minor inaccuracies.


Please do not allow pets in to the bedrooms.


The Station Master’s House is strictly a non smoking house.
