Use the calander below to check on availability and to make a booking.  Weekly bookings start on Fridays.  Short breaks starting on Frdays (3 nights) or Monday (4 nights) are available from November to March.  Short breaks are priced at 70% of the relevant weekly rate. 

A deposit of 25% of the total rent is payable at the time of booking . Once the deposit has been paid and the booking has been confirmed in writing or e-mail by us, a binding contract will exist between us. Deposits are non-refundable unless we are unable to accept the booking.


The full balance is due six weeks before the arrival day. If this is not received, we have the right to cancel the holiday and the deposit may be lost. We are not obliged to send reminders. For bookings made within six weeks of the arrival day, the full rent must be paid immediately.

Payment in £ Sterling may be made by cheque (made payable to G & F Paton) or by electronic transfer.  If you wish to use either of these methods please let us know in the comments box and we will give you the relevant details.

An allowance of £60/week is deducted from the total energy cost and the balance is payable at the end of the let by cheque or cash or direct tranasfer. The telephones are provided on an “honesty box” system and guests should pay for any usage at the same time as paying for electricity and oil.

For stays starting in 2018 onwards, all oil and electricity costs are included in the price.  Logs, coal, telephone calls and packets of Nespresso capsules are charged at cost and can be paid by cash, direct transfer or card at the end of the stay.
