The prices we charge are set according to the number of people the property sleeps, location and rating of the property. These prices are subject to change from time to time, however the price quoted when you book is the price you pay regardless of any change to the prices in the meantime.
We request a 25% deposit plus the booking fee and any card charges at the time of booking and the balance 56 days prior to your holiday.
We have varying price structures depending on the time of year these are low, mid, high, peak and sometimes even separate pricing for Christmas/New Year. Unlike many other services, we do not band cottages into the same price ranges. Almost all of our cottages have individual rates special to every one.
To find the price for any particular period, click on the cottage you are interested in, once in the detailed page for that cottage you will see a booking calendar to the right hand side. If there is no availability no price will appear. With availability you can find the price for short breaks or week breaks by using the drop down menu just above the calendar. Some cottages can take any arrangement of start days and finish days. For these you need to use the drop down menu to select number of people, then the drop down "adjust duration" menu for number of days and then click on the calendar on the green highlighted start day you require, the price will appear below the calendar. If the start date you require is not highlighted in green, the property you are interested in does not do arrivals on that day, please ring us if the start day is a must and we can ask the homeowner to make an exception or suggest something else suitable for you. At this stage you do not need to disclose any personal information. Personal information will be needed if you decide to book by clicking the book now button below the price.
Short Breaks, Autumn Breaks, Winter Breaks, Summer Breaks, Romantic Breaks, Mid Week Breaks, Walking Breaks, Golfing Breaks, Cycling Breaks, Pamper Breaks, Hen Party Breaks, Family Reunions, House Party Breaks......
We offer short break holidays whenever possible, even during the school holidays on some cottages, as these are becoming increasingly popular. It is of course, better value to book for 7 nights but we understand that some people may have limited holidays to take or may just prefer to take short breaks. Some of our cottages will offer any permutation of start and finish days but it is nearly always necessary to book for three nights more due to the cost of changeovers.
We normally have our holiday cottages ready for you from 4.00pm and departure time on your last day is normally 10am, Individual cottages may vary and these again are specified in the cottage details. We do try to be flexible with these times, especially for short break bookings. Please let us know when you book, what times would be ideal and we will try to accommodate you, it's not always possible but we will try our best to fit into your schedule.
Many people who book a short break in our area, normally return for a longer stay, there is a huge amount to see and do in Herefordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire Borders and the Welsh Marches. See our Events Calendar , Attractions and Where to Eat for more details.
Some properties may have additional charges over and above the rental of the property for example accommodating your pet, security deposit, heating charge etc. This will be made clear on the property description page.
All bookings are subject to our terms and conditions.
We charge a booking fee of £27.00 per property, per booking (whether short break or longer) for our services, this is included in the Cottage Price info given below the calendar. We accept payment by cheque, debit cards and credit cards (Visa or MasterCard) or Cardnet, no charge for debit cards but a charge of 3.3% is made for the use of credit cards, we apologise for this but we are charged for this service. All credit card charges are equal to or below the cost to us. All prices are inclusive of any vat applicable.
