Just a few little things to ensure you are aware of before booking;
A baby is welcome, although the stairs are unsuitable for an infant of walking age, so we cannot accept infants at walking age or above. A cot and a highchair are available upon request.
Holly Beck Stables is a lovely quiet spot but please be aware that it is adjoining another property ‘Holly Beck House', so you will have a close neighbour.

We would ask you to take out all rubbish and leave in porch; dispose of all unused food; clear all washing-up (including a clean oven). We have a non-smoking policy and this includes vaping and electronic cigarettes. Please let us know of any damage or breakages that may occur before your departure, so that we can replace / fix these items, prior to the next guests arriving.

If successful, we will refund any monies paid by the new hirer to you, less your deposit, although this may not be the same amount that you originally paid.

Your responsibilities – Please note that you are responsible for the cottage whilst on holiday, so please keep all furnishings and fittings, inside and outside the property in a comparable state of repair and condition as at the beginning of your stay. Breach of these conditions may result in us making an additional cleaning charge or making a claim against you as a result of any damage or loss. We would also ask you to not abuse the property, to show due consideration for other people and not to display rude, dangerous or offensive behaviour towards us, the owners or any other third party. Possession of the cottage can be refused or you can be asked to leave before the end of your stay. If this happens we will treat your holiday as having been cancelled by you and you will not be entitled to a refund of your holiday cost or compensation. It is your responsibility to check that the cottage meets your needs and we cannot be responsible for ensuring the cottage is entirely suitable for your needs. We cannot accept any bookings that are specified to be conditional upon fulfilment of a particular request.

In order to minimise the impact of Covid-19 for all at Holly Beck Stables we have had to make changes. We have reviewed our cleaning and safety protocols to help protect you and ourselves. This will mean that things are slightly different, which we feel sure you will understand.
We still want you to feel as welcome as ever and enjoy your time here.
Should a local or national lockdown occur and prevent you from occupying the cottage an offer of an alternative date or full refund will be offered.
Cleaning will take extra time – we now “triple clean” – our usual high level cleaning and virus sanitising is enhanced by a final ozone process. This means that we will take a little longer for each changeover. Our guests’ health is a priority. To ensure time is available to thoroughly complete our triple clean programme we are leaving extra time between bookings. Hence arrival will be after 4pm, and on departure day you are required to leave by 9am.
On arrival …
Please park in the DRIVEWAY. Please contact us to confirm your arrival.
Please check in on the NHS Covid -19 App using the QR Code you will find in the cottage, the app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.
