House Policy

Wood Cottage is strictly non smoking.
We ask guests to leave the cottage how they find it.
Any damage must be reported straight away

At Wood Cottage we don't charge guests a cleaning fee. Because of this you should clean the Cottage at the end of your stay and return it to the condition you found it in when you arrived. If you are not happy to do this and uphold the cleaning agreement then, unfortunately, Wood Cottage is probably not for you. Due to this arrangement it means we can maintain the lowest holiday cost for you. A security deposit of £100 is to be paid to secure your break. The deposit will be refunded within 5 days after the cottage has been checked for breakages and provided that the Cottage cleaning agreement has been upheld and the Cottage has been left cleaned to a reasonable and acceptable standard.

Cancellation Policy

In the event of cancellation on the part of the guest, refunds are offered only at owners discretion. An administration charge will be deducted from any refund. The owners reserve the right to refuse a booking or terminate a booking should these terms of booking not be met or an unreasonable behaviour/disturbance is caused during let.

In the unlikely event of cancellation by the owner, we reserve the right to cancel or alter arrangements made for the visitors before or during the booking, if due to circumstances beyond our control, it is necessary to carry out essential repairs (e.g in the event of water pipes bursting).(e.g in the event of being double booked) If this happens, you will receive a full refund, but our liability is limited to the amount of accommodation fee, not other expenses incurred.
