Damage and cleaning
The owners accept no liability for injury, loss, or damage to guests and/or their belongings or for damage to any motor vehicle or contents.

Minor breakages are not usually charged, but please inform us as soon as possible so they can be replaced before the next guests.
We expect all our guests to respect our properties and leave them in a clean and tidy condition. If the cottages are not left in a clean and tidy condition and require more than the normal cleaning we will charge for the extra cleaning. Paying this charge is the responsibility of the person or company who booked the cottage
