Booking Terms & Conditions

We are excited to welcome guests to Sundale Cottage and hope that everyone visiting has a wonderful holiday making precious memories. Please take a look at all the serious stuff below before you make your booking…

How to book

Please contact us directly to talk through your booking requirements via the email address below. You can look up prices and availability elsewhere on this site.


The cottage is most suitable for up to four adults in two double bedrooms, and two children in the bunk room. Maximum occupancy is restricted to up to six adults plus one child in a cot. Be aware that the bunk room is really designed for children, although the mattresses are full sized singles so it is possible for adults to sleep on them in relative comfort.

We are able to provide a travel cot, high chair and safety gate for very young children. Please note however that the kitchen does not have safety cupboard or drawer locks and there is no guard around the wood burner so toddlers and young children should be closely supervised at all times.

We welcome up to two well behaved dogs at a charge of £20 per dog. We ask you to kindly prevent your dogs from going upstairs and to keep them off the furniture. Any damage or undue mess to the garden, carpets or furnishings will be charged and deducted from your security deposit.

Smoking is not permitted anywhere inside the property.

Arrival and departure

Our changeover day is a Saturday and guests can access the cottage from 3pm onwards. Keys will be left for you in the key safe and the combination forwarded to you once your full booking fee has been received. At the end of your stay we ask you to vacate the cottage by 10am, leaving the keys in the key safe.


You can park up on the road on the opposite side, outside the cottage. If you prefer you can park in the village square about thirty metres away outside the Spar shop. There is also a free car park next to the church. Please note that the gated driveway next to the cottage belongs to our neighbours so unfortunately you cannot park there.
