Minimum 2 nights stay throughout the year.

Minimum 3 nights stay may be required over Bank Holiday weekends and/or during some key Festivals and Events.

Our preferred methods are debit card or cash. Most major credit cards are also accepted.

As above up to 29 days before commencement of the stay. 28 days or less, we reserve the right to charge the room(s) in full unless the room(s) can be re-let. We will do our best to re-let the room(s) but please note that re-letting is not guaranteed and if not re-let you will be charged accordingly.


Often a better option for guests than cancelation! We are usually able to move your booking, free of any extra charges, to dates later in the same calendar year (subject to availability and any price changes).

During the Covid-19 Pandemic: 

Where Government Covid-19 restrictions/guidelines dictate that you are unable to fulfil your booking and/or we have had to close the B&B, we will offer you the opportunity to postpone your booking, free of any extra charges, to new dates of your choosing later in the year (subject to availability and any price changes). Should you not be able to provide new dates then we would provide you with a voucher to the value of your booking deposit payment that can easily be redeemed when you book a new stay via our website.

Travel Insurance: It is advisable to have UK travel insurance to cover you whilst you are away in case damages or cancellation charges are incurred.

Check-in: from 4.00pm to 6.00pm unless by prior arrangement. Phone us if you arrive earlier as it may be possible for you to park up prior to checking-in later. Please phone us at least one hour prior to your arrival to ensure we are available to check you in.

Check-out: Up to 10.30am 

Car Parking: 

Private car parking - we have 3 small garages for small sized cars available on a first-come-first-served basis. Garage use is entirely at the guests discretion, and responsibility.  

However, if like most of our guests you only have large vehicles, then there are a few roadside parking spaces across the road from the garages - subject to availability. Should no spaces be available on Prospect Road, the next road above us (South Furzeham Road), is a much longer road of free roadside parking - from here it's just a 2-3 minute walk downhill to the B&B. Alternatively, if you prefer, or you can't find roadside parking, there are two local P&D car parks nearby: The short-stay town centre car park is located just below us (2-3 minutes walk), and the Long /Short-stay car park is behind us in Oxon Cove (8-10 minutes walk). Please note that we do not accept responsibility for any damage, howsoever caused, to Guests vehicles whilst parked, parking or manoeuvring.
