There are a number of ways to book…
1) Online 24/7:
You can book online 24/7; simply go to the webpage of the property you are interested in and on the availability calendar, click on the dates of the arrival and departure that you wish to stay. The rental will display along with a ‘book now’ link. This will take you to the online booking page. Enter the number of people in your booking (N.B We offer discount for smaller groups in our larger properties during certain periods throughout the year so sometimes the initial rental displayed is based on just 2 people, therefore, when entering the correct number of people in your booking, the rental may increase – the full rentals are listed on each webpage and give details of the dates that discount is applicable).
Any offers or discounts we may be offering at the time of booking will be automatically applied. When you have completed the booking process, you will receive a reservation confirmation email along with login details to pay securely online (other payment options available – see ‘Booking information’). Once payment has been received, another email will be automatically sent confirming payment and listing the balance payment due date or if paid in full, the directions / key collection & further information relating to the booked property.
