A non-refundable deposit of £100 is payable on booking (by credit/debit card over the telephone or cheque payable to Hope Farm Cottages).

For bookings made less than 5 weeks in advance, the total amount is payable on booking. All payments will be receipted by return.

Payments From Outside the UK

In our experience, the easiest way to pay for your holiday is to transfer funds electronically from your bank to ours. On booking, we will provide you with our bank details and international codes. If you prefer, you can pay by credit/debt card, international money order or a bankers draft in UK pounds. All payments will be receipted by return.


Non-payment of any deposits or balances by due dates may be deemed by us to be a cancellation of the booking by you.

What is Included?

Bedding and towels are included in the rental (not for cot).

Electricity is provided by way of card meters. A £10 card is included per week of stay (normally more than adequate for a summer week); A £5 card is included for a short stay. Additional cards in denominations of £1, £5, £10 and £20 may be purchased from the farmhouse.





In the event of cancellation by you, we will try to relet and, if successful, we will refund all monies received less £25 administration fee, per cottage per week or part-week. May we remind you that your holiday booking is a legally binding contract and you are recommended to insure against cancellation (Click on "Guest First" link to the left).
