Holiday Insurance and Cancellations

You are highly recommended to obtain holiday insurance against unavoidable cancellation of your booking through accident, illness or other unforeseen circumstances. Should you need to cancel, we will try to re-let the accommodation but should this be unsuccessful, you are legally liable to pay the full amount of the accommodation. Your preferred insurance broker will be able to help you as will our local agent.

Young People

Due to the quiet residential nature of the location, we are unfortunately unable to accept bookings from groups of young people and /or same-sex groups.

Balance Payment

Your balance payment is due eight weeks prior to the start of your holiday and we will send out reminders. Failure to pay the balance on time may result in the loss of your deposit and cancellation of your booking.

Arrival / Departure

The Beach Haven will be available from 4pm on the day of your arrival. If you wish to drop off bags earlier than this, you are welcome to do so but you will not have access to the accommodation. Please advise us of your expected arrival time. You must vacate The Beach Haven by 10.00am on the day of departure.

No Smoking

Smoking is strictly not permitted anywhere inside The Beach Haven. Any person found to be doing so during their holiday or after vacating will be liable to pay for additional valeting.


Linen and towels are supplied but please bring your own beach towels.


We welcome up to three dogs on your visit but with respect to future visitors, we have a bare minimum of strict conditions. Firstly, dogs must not, at any time, no matter how cute or cuddly they are, be allowed on beds or furniture *unless you bring your own bedding/throws. Secondly, we have a designated long-grass area in the back garden for morning and evening ablutions but please clear up immediately after your dog and use the bin provided.  Lastly, your dog must not be left unattended at The Beach Haven at any time unless you are 100% certain that they will not be distressed, whine, bark, cause damage or urinate (or worse) in the house. In any event, do not leave your dog alone for more than 2 hours. Should you need to go off without your dog, the Beach Hut (garden shed) is a well-ventilated, secure place to leave your dog or we may be available to dog-sit and/or walk, by prior arrangement. Any damage, howsoever caused, will have to be paid for.

*Please bring a complete bedding set for any bed your dog might sleep on. This includes a king-size bottom sheet, pillowcases, duvet and duvet cover.
