Booking arrangements

We look forward to welcoming you to Fossil Cottage for a special holiday you will not forget.

Before contacting us, first check the Rates and Dates page to see if the week you want is available.

A deposit of 50% of the weekly rate is required at time of booking, or for a two week booking 50% of the total. The balance is payable a month before arrival. Your booking will be held provisionally until we receive your deposit, for a maximum of one week. Eight days after your booking request, if the deposit has not arrived, the reservation will be considered invalid and the cottage made available again for booking by others.

If the booking is less than one month ahead, full payment is required on confirmation. If the booking is last-minute, the full price is payable on arrival. If you have to cancel, we can only make a refund if we are able to relet the cottage. However, we will have to deduct 25 from the refund to cover our administration costs. It is always advisable to have holiday insurance.

Full directions for finding Fossil Cottage will be provided with our confirmation of your booking. If you have any questions on any aspect of your holiday, we'll be pleased to help.

You may arrive on your first day any time after 4pm. We ask that you leave the cottage by 10am on your final day, to give us sufficient time to check that you've left it in the condition you found it and to prepare for the next guests.

Off-season short breaks may be possible. Please contact us to enquire.
