COVID-19 insurance terms and conditions

Firstly, and above everything else, we urge ALL guests to buy appropriate travel insurance. We are not permitted to recommend individual insurers. We believe that some insurance companies are providing cover for Covid-19. Please carry out your own research, the ‘Which’ website may be a good place to start. 

In the event of a national lockdown we will offer you a transfer of dates or a full refund. In the case of a transfer of dates if the new dates differ in price to your original dates you will be refunded the difference if your new dates are a lower price or be required to pay the additional cost if your new dates are a higher price. 

If we are required to close by the government we will offer you a transfer of dates or a full refund. In the case of a transfer of dates if the new dates differ in price to your original dates you will be refunded the difference if your new dates are a lower price or required to pay the additional cost if your new dates are a higher price. 

We cannot offer refunds for disinclination to travel. This means that if you change your mind for whatever reason & choose not to take your holiday we cannot offer you a refund. Please refer to our standard terms & conditions regarding cancellation. 

We cannot offer refunds for illness, including Covid-19, personal shielding or self isolation. This means that you must claim on your own insurance. If you do not have insurance please refer to our standard terms & conditions regarding cancellation. 

We cannot offer refunds if guests cannot complete their stay, early departure does not warrant a rental decrease. 

Please ensure that you follow all Government guidance on travel if you are unwell before arrival. We cannot accept guests isolating at our properties.

If a guest becomes unwell during their stay we ask that they return to their main residence in line with guidance. Please inform us if anyone in the party becomes unwell or has a positive swab for Covid 19 as this will affect sanitiser protocols.

If a guest cannot reasonably return home (for example, because they are not well enough to travel or do not have the means to arrange transport), their circumstances should be discussed with an appropriate health care professional and, if necessary, the local authority. Guests should follow Government guidance on dealing with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection. If they are too unwell to travel, they will be liable for the additional rental for any longer period staying and costs of any subsequent cancellations incurred.

We urge guests to ensure they have adequate Travel Insurance.
